Forming a huge translucent sheet, the Canopy spans two public buildings, shops and a train station. Each of the Canopy's "tiles" is composed of a mix of two different glasses: the yellow translucent enamelled Stratobel Imagin Gothic and the enamelled Planibel Clearvision (partially to give it a matt appearance).
The panel of the upper section was screen-printed to create a colour similar to that of sand and offer a degree of translucency providing gentle diffusion of light, protection against UV rays and climate comfort as intended by the architects Patrick Berger and Jacques Anziutti.
AGC Vertal Sud-Est supplied the 18,000 glass panels. These laminated glass modules, ranging in size from 1.10 to 1.60 metres, underwent a series of tests to achieve the desired technical characteristics, physical properties and aesthetic. This immense canopy is the most spectacular element of the project and makes it unique!
