Chihuly Garden and Glass

In the shadows of the Seattle Space Needle, Novum provided a single source enclosure comprised of asymmetric primary steel arches with longitudinal hollow profiles and tension rod (TR) bracing. The enclosure design accommodates seismic movements and environmental loadings. The glass is supported by the Novum's Edge Clamped Glass System and flush glazing. The combination of AES + TR + ECG Systems made for a stunning exhibition space for the Chihuly collection.
