Similar to the previous project King Abdulaziz Centre for Word Culture in Saudi Arabia a façade made of stainless steel tubes was created. The technology for bending stainless steel tubes, which was specifically developed for the project in Saudi Arabia, was applied to the WestQuay Watermark in Southampton/UK as well. 13,4km of three dimensional bent stainless steel tubes were installed to form this suspended tubular façade.
