EXTERIOR WALL ELEMENTS FOR THE “CENTRO ARTE E CULTURA LAC”
The art and culture center of Lugano (LAC) is the hub of the culture activities in the city. Located near the lake-side promenade Riva Caccia, LAC disposes of a huge theatre- and concert-hall, exhibition rooms, a studio theater and a multipurpose hall.
The LAC’s every room and installation were designed in accordance with the newest construction criteria, according to the important flexibility-need of a multipurpose building, as well as the most modern conservation principles and the sustainablilty.
The carrying steel framework functions as primary structure for the exterior wall elements made of lightweight steel framed Cocoon Transformer profiles.
The elements were prefabricated to accelerate the process and to secure the quality. A facing shell was mounted on the inside. This increases the sound insulation values and covers the carrying framework. It allows the free design of the interior rooms for exhibits or other activities.
