The project adopts 7 layers of 15mm low iron SGP laminated glass, with a maximum size of 12m and the each glass weight about 5.6 tons.

On May 18,2022, the International Museum Day, the opening ceremony of the Luoyang Sui-Tang Dynasties Grand Canal Cultural Museum was successfully held, and a new landmark building hall in Luoyang was officially opened to the public.

The project of curtain wall glass is created by Luoyang NorthGlass. The project adopts 7 layers of 15mm super white SGP laminated glass, the maximum size is 12 meters, and the weight of a single piece of glass is about 5.6 tons. The overweight, super thick and super large glass curtain wall project is rare in China.

Sui-Tang Dynasties Grand Canal Cultural Museum is designed by CAUP Tongji University. The overall design concept is “canal source, Sui-Tang rhyme and Heluo technology”. The most eye-catching is a row of inverted arched facades perpendicular to the ground at the top. At the beginning of the design, the designer extracted the arch elements from the water conservancy project as the basic structure of the building, so that the arched structures support a magnificent building, and also support people's historical memory and imagination space of the canal cultural heritage.
