For the Adidas World of Sports Arena office in Herzogenaurach, Germany, the façade elements are larger than on Agora to match its monumental scale, more structurally complex and attached on each floor to a vertical frame. Highly challenging as the building’s thermal envelope is fully glazed, the fixed sunshading system consists of opaque and perforated aluminium panels mounted to a reinforced steel frame, and open wings, spaced 2.7 metres apart, guarantee excellent views from within.
