The Chapel of St. Lawrence in Vantaa, Finland is a beautiful example of architecture’s ability to showcase a journey independently of the project’s articulated message. Two young architects who immediately gained international recognition for their intelligible designs started the responsible firm in 2004. Avanto Architects’ design for the chapel focused on the Christian concept of ‘the Path,’ in which the journey to eternity is experienced.
Two new public spaces in the Versailles Pavilion Dufour shine with detailed gold Escale 5x1 from GKD as part of a redevelopment project designed by French architect, Dominique Perrault. Among the classic stone and wood materials is an awe-inspiring golden ceiling made of shimmering, golden metal fabric. The metal mesh dresses the entryway, where visitors begin their tour, making a strong architectural statement. Then, throughout the gallery gold Escale creates a modern accent that contrasts beautifully against a natural palette.
A metal mesh system for a ceiling is a unique choice for a building. That’s why the new workspace for ValueAct Capital, a prominent investment management company located in San Francisco, stands out with GKD metal fabric specified in the ceiling.
Located in South China we find the city’s capital Guangzhou and a large GKD metal mesh project purposed as a children’s venue. Guangzhou is a top city in China, next to Beijing and Shanghai, in terms of size and population. The southern China city is quite prosperous and serves as the main manufacturing hub of the Pearl River Delta. It is here that the cultural hub, the Guangzhou Library, the Guangzhou Opera House, the area Museum, and the Guangzhou No. 2 Children’s Palace serves as the bustling city’s Culture and Art Square.
