Two projects in Denmark show with expanded metal from RMIG how a sunscreen that was technically necessary makes for sophisticated architecture.
Stadium façade refers to the Polish national colors, resembling a waving Flag of Poland and it consists of silver and red colors. The same palette were used to coloring stadium seats. The facade, consists of painted mesh that was imported from Spain, covers inner aluminum and glass elevation. The stadium is an open structure, which means the lack of closed facade, so the temperature inside the object is similar to the environmental temperature, despite the closed roof construction. Such construction of facade allows natural ventilation of rooms placed under the stands and access of natural light.
