About

This Work

Novum was responsible for the design, manufacture and installation of an ETFE air filled pillow façade. From an early stage, Novum engineers worked closely with the architects, Foster + Partners, to create an ETFE screen print that offered effective daylight illumination to the foyer while controlling solar gain and ensuring visibility of projected images at night. Novum used proprietary software to map the ETFE print pattern. This ensured that over the total of 14,360m2 ETFE foil used on the façade as a combination of 2 and 3 layer pillows, that every dot lined up on the welds and seams, generating a continuous pattern without breaks.
