Data

Overall Project Time:
2012-2013

Execution Period:
16 Months
The spectacular free-form facade of Fondation Jérôme Seydoux–Pathé was completely planned, manufactured and installed by FRENER & REIFER.

Scope of work

Dome:

  • Doubly-curved insulated glass units superimposed on a primary timber load-bearing construction consisting of curved laminated wooden beams and a secondary steel construction.
  • Exterior cladding: approx. 7.500 curved perforated aluminium lamellae.
  • Ground floor standard glass facade using the minimo_FR system.
  • Fire-services doors integrated into the cladding.
  • Fire doors.
  • Parametrically planned complete solution construction.

Innovations / Challenges

  • Free-form geometry requiring high level of precision execution for curved and bent elements.
  • Urban building site with difficult access.
  • Execution of glass dome with double-curved glass units (ATEx procedure).
  • Execution of curved structure of exterior aluminium cladding.
  • Adaptation minimo_ FR system for curved glass units of ground floor facade.
