Abstract

On a square in the old city center of Haarlem (NL) on top of an underground car park garage a glass entrance building was designed by architect Kraayvanger Urbis. ABT/ Rob Nijsse developed the all glass structure for this spectacular building. The fact that the stability was provided by the roof in combination with the four walls of the project makes it something special. Also the application of full glass rods in the structure of the roof is an innovation in the world of making glass structures.
