EGO Dach 1 SmallThe roof is designed in a 2.1 x 2.1 m module, and of glass panels from laminated safety glass (VSG). The total surface of 1,250 sqm, with a height difference between 6 m and 15 m, stretches out over a length of 52 m and 24 m width. Each of the 2 x 8 mm thick glass panels weighs about 160 kgs. Due to the curved structure of the wave, each of the 295 panels is manufactured to a different geometry.

The support of the 86 tons roof structure is provided by 8 tree-shaped columns with each 4 radially arranged branches, weighing in total 27 tons.

900 hot-dip galvanized MERO-Plus members are carrying the roof like an airy wave in the Odenwald.
