The National Aquarium
Novum executed a single source contract for the full structure and glazing of this landmark aquarium addition. A huge 100' (30m) high by 100' (30m) wide window provides the public an invite to new exhibits. Ultimate transparency was achieved by the use of point supported glass braced by ultra light rod suspended horizontal trusses. The sloped skylight features a grid of inclined cable trusses.
