Overture Center for the Arts: Stairway Enclosure

The unique wedge shaped atrium space highlights this prominent intersection in the capital city of Wisconsin. The atrium showcases an all glass stair requiring a light weight façade. Horizontal steel tubes are suspended from the roof and braced at the building by light columns in the atrium. A hinged corner connection allows load transfer at the complex tip intersection. Glass is linear supported.
