The architects at WTL Design, with the help of BMW Building Design Senior Manager, Nicholas Ott, designed the BMW Brand Experience Center in Shanghai using a minimalistic approach. The project marks the first use of GKD’s Mediamesh technology in China. The stunning glass and white design evokes transparency, both in the building itself and the brand’s identity. The 21,500 square foot building utilizes interior Mediamesh screens that are visible from the outside, thanks again to the transparent glass façade.
In Metz, France, a historic city known for its culture, green landscapes, and architecture, a shimmering rectangular-shaped building rises from a sloping landscape. The building designed by KL Architects is known as the Chamber of Crafts. The textile skin made of GKD Lago stainless steel mesh plays a central role in the building’s eligibility for sustainable recognition according to specifications from the French low-energy building label, Batiment Basse Consommation (BBC).
GKD Metal Fabrics has transformed their attachment systems and product catalog with Audodesk® Seek into 3-D Building Information Modeling Files (BIM) and two-dimensional drawings.
Seven buildings surround a sprawling courtyard in the historic heart of Berlin at the Potsdamer Platz. The most impressive out of the cluster of office centers is the central plaza canopied by a towering tent structure made from glass and steel. German-American architect, Helmut Jahn of Murphy-Jahn Architects, designed the reconstruction project that won the original design competition. Also, notably, consulting with the architects was the world-renowned multi-disciplinary engineering firm, Arup.
