About

This Work

2016 saw the grand opening of the African continent’s largest shopping mall. Located almost midway between Johannesburg and Pretoria, the huge complex features a mall avenue covered its full length with a freeform roof with ETFE cladding. The cladding features clear and transparent panels and is electronically digitized at night for an enhanced lighting experience. Novum’s mechanically fastened FF-System in a 6m plus grid was perfect for triangular air filled pillows using our AFP-System. The mall has since received multiple awards and excellent reviews.
