Glass envelope with steel structure, glass floorings and furnishing elements.
The “Drops” of the “ urban center” built in Bologna are covered by a double ‘skin’. The outer ‘skin’ is made of curved laminated glass; the second, internal, is instead formed by a series of vertical tubes of transparent Plexiglas.
Each tube is lit from below by a LED system creating a dynamic light effect.
