About

This Work

The Visitor Center for the Capitol Building is actually constructed below ground so Novum installed six skylights in its roof. The skylight “sandwich” consists of a laminated outer light (ground level of the Capitol), 4′ deep tension trusses, a lightweight cable catch net and a laminated inside light.
