Overture Center for the Arts: Rotunda Skylight

A small light weight skylight serves to both let light into the complex and as a visual external beacon above the flat roofed complex. Tension bracing rods allow the tubular steel to be kept very slender and linear supported glass minimises the total system depth. The structure was unitised to minimise site assembly time and shipping costs.
