The roof structure itself consists of 1,854 geometrically different glass elements with a dotted frit pattern, as well as a solar protection coating. In order to provide a delicate filtering of light and optimal acoustic conditions, micro-perforated clear membrane panels also printed with a dotted pattern are mounted in a separate layer underneath the glazing.
In October 2018, the visual mock-up was accepted by the architects. Fabrication is expected to begin in March 2019.
