CCLRT West Bank

Omega 1510 / 1550 stainless steel mesh combines art and architecture in a solar protection façade at the CCLRT West Bank Station in Minneapolis

Array ( [post_type] => calendar [orderby] => meta_value [meta_key] => event_dates_%_event_end [order] => ASC [posts_per_page] => 1 [meta_query] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [key] => event_dates_%_event_end [compare] => >= [type] => DATE [value] => 2017-12-18 ) ) [post__in] => Array ( [0] => ) )

The architects from AECOM NY collaborated with American artist Nancy Blum to design a unique façade, which was then realized using GKD's Omega design mesh. The artistic design was permanently etched into the metal mesh using a special process.

In combination with large-format images created in stainless steel, migratory birds represent the coming and going of the various groups of immigrants that follow the path of the nearby Mississippi.

A multifunctional solar protection façade was created to guard the extensively glazed, two-story building against unpleasant heat in summer.

This project combines safety functionality with solar protection, aesthetic architecture and art.
