GTAA - Toronto Airport - Retail Metal Canopies

Location Toronto, Ontario
Designer/Architect Skidmore, Owings & Merrill
Duration Jun 2003 - Aug 2003
Scope - Engineered, manufactured and installed (12) custom ceiling suspended undulating canopies, fabricated from 1" x 2" aluminum tubes and suspended from ceiling using stainless steel rods and custom hardware.
Highlights - This fast-tracked project was complete in less than three months from receipt of concept drawings. Three-dimensional drawing software was unable to predict the final suspended shape of the canopies, so our team constructed a scale model that confirmed each slat formed the desired undulation envisioned by the architect, prior to manufacturing.
