Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

Fittingly, the Smithsonian Air + Space Museum has a traditional space truss entry canopy. The Novum KK-System is ideal for lightweight long span applications and the PSG-System allows structural glazing panels to be directly bolted to spider arms which in turn bolt directly to the spherical space truss node. The optimised combined systems projects a clean and simple solution.
