Abstract

In the context of the search for an efficient structural shape to cover the Dutch Maritime Museum courtyard in Amsterdam, the authors briefly discuss the driving design factors that influenced the earliest glass roof coverings. The trends that have emerged during the late 20th and beginning 21st century in the design of skeletal steel glass shells are exposed. These design developments range from sculptural to geometrical and physical intentions (part a).
