Canary Wharf Crossrail Station

The 310 meter long and 34 meter wide faćade of translucent ETFE air cushions sits on a wooden frame. The basic grid for the façade elements runs symmetrically to the longitudinal and transverse axes.

The 780 cushions are held with 1400 edges and 539 connecting nodes. Depending on the profile direction and number, these nodes are designed differently. Below the profile plane the air duct system for the pillows runs.
