Translucent point supported glass provides shade and shelter in the contemplative area of this modern military cemetery. Two stark white steel spaceframe canopies support the glazing system in different ways. The larger grid 60m span roof has a bending stiff upper chord to support the glass whereas the smaller band shell the glass bolts only to the nodes.
