Description SANTA CREU AND SANT PAU HOSPITAL
new research building of the Santa Creu i Sant Pau Hospital has been built
inside the hospital compound, located in the city of Barcelona. The new
building is linked to those already in existence by a walkway at second floor
level, which will facilitate the flow of people between the premises. A large
metal structure of bars in a spiral tube shape that connects the two buildings
and is covered by a perforated membrane.
The perforated fabric is see-through both from the inside and from the
outside. The walkway DNA with the double helix spiral is transmitted in an
exceptional way with the single-piece continuous membrane.
walkway is approximately 14.5 m long. The outer diameter of the structure is
3.5 m. The membrane, making a single piece, is formed of rhombus-shaped parts.
Some of them have required pattern construction to fit the structure's geometry
