Abstract

A new glass-steel roof for an auditorium of the “ex Sala Contrattazioni” in Cuneo (I) was built in 2009, with a design resulted winner of an architectural concourse. The construction, despite the small dimension, is the result of a design process that involved many interdisciplinary professionals, from architectural conception to the construction phase. The main structure has a non-conventional behavior and the steel girders support the curved glass panes with point devices. This article offers an overview of the design criteria, news on technological solutions, and unusual construction methods applied to this particular application.
