Akasya Mall: Skylights

The luxury mall features 3 major skylights. Two of them are mirror image freeform systems whereas the third is of a conventional symmetric lens shape. Insulated glass is used throughout and held with flush glazed edge clamps. The freeform skylights span a longitudinal expansion joint and so discreet tension cables tie the necessary continuous ring beam to accommodate seismic movements.
