New York, NY | USA
The unassuming hipped roof of the former headquarters of Tammany Hall on Union Square will soon turn to glass and terracotta and grow to support an unconventional shell-like dome.
The scope of work includes the design and installation of the dome shaped glass roof on steel grid shell structure.
The dome is meant to be both evocative and respectful of the building’s past while also bringing architectural spectacle to this rather staid corner of Union Square.
Scope of Work
Steel-/glass structure, tube/node structure, teracotta sunshading elements.
Freeform steel-/glass structure (RT-1 and RT-2)
RT-1: bolted tube/node structure formed by standard hollow sections and machined steel nodes, glazed with IGU.
RT-2: welded steelstructure formed by standard hollow sections, glazed with IGU, partly with terracotta sunshading elements.
