The Concept

Brickell City Centre brings three levels of unparalleled shopping, dining and entertainment. Several buildings and high-rises of the centre, are connected by a unique architectural feature: the glazed climate ribbon. It is a 340-m-long (1,115 ft) steel and glass roof structure that protects pedestrians and visitors not only from the weather but also offers an ecological solution to improve the micro-climate of the public spaces through shading and natural ventilation. The climate ribbon is T-shaped and winding along between the buildings. The complex geometry of the facetted canopy was designed using 3D computer models. With a span of approx. 30 m (98.4 ft) and special shading elements with a glass fiber-reinforced membrane, it resulted in a huge challenge for both the steel construction and the logistics.

The Project
Scope of Work

Climate ribbon composed of steel, glazing and shading elements for an overall area of 7,000 sqm (75,300 sq ft).

14,200 sqm (152,800 sq ft) membranes of glass fibre reinforced textiles.
