Roof for Coach Station - Garbagnate Milanese (Italy)

Model realization for Studio Valle Progettazioni (Rome)

DescriptionGalleryDetails


As part of the transport interchange for Garbagnate Milanese, plans for a large coach station have been put forward. Protection for travellers and workers will be provided by the addition of a roof structure designed by Studio Valle Progettazioni, Rome, to filter the harshness of the summer sun whilst giving the effect of lightness and ephemerality. To this end, two static systems will work together to create this effect. With the first, curved beams resting on central supports will be used to obtain an overhang of around 10 metres. The second system fixes the extreme points of the overhang to central pylons by way of tierods of steel cables. The model experiments with the complex structural system.
