Florida “Igloo”

It was recently announced that  the Salvador Dali Museum has received the Novum Design Excellence Award within the Specialty Clad Structure Category.

A design objective was to protect the most significant collection of Salvador Dali’s art while creating a new museum with iconic presence. The museum is currently under construction and has more than 900 triangular shaped pieces of glass that make up what is called “the Igloo” at about 45′ tall and “the Enigma”  which is more than 75″ tall.  Each piece of glass is different within the Novum structure that overlooks the water at the St. Petersburg, Florida site.

    Thanks for posting Nico! I remember some folks from London talking about the rationalization in Rhino to get these panels to work in this form. It would be great to post some of those design model images from Rhino also!
