Mullions curtain wall on Libeskind's theatre (022)

Beyond the geometric complexity of Libeskind´s architecture, we want to draw our attention to this curtain wall without transoms that closes the double height entrance hall of the Grand Canal Theatre. The objective is to enhance the verticality of the plane by means of relatively close mullions and the absence of transoms. Unfortunately the black sealing cord takes on an unexpected protagonism among a tangle of white profiles, clear glass and most of the finishes in the hall also white.
