Cambridge has recently engineered and executed the designs for two curved architectural mesh systems – one adapts to Cambridge’s Eclipse™ attachment to precisely match and effectively hold flowing mesh panels, and the other attaches flexible mesh to a custom-designed curved steel framework.
Curving architectural mesh produces a unique building element that brings depth and the impression of movement to a structure’s exterior. In each of the following projects where curved mesh was used, architectural firms came to Cambridge with their innovative ideas, and Cambridge was able to build them with their material.
The curved Eclipse attachment tubes were used in the Aria Resort & Casino, which is the centerpiece of the brand new CityCenter Las Vegas urban resort development – the largest privately funded construction project in the history of the United States. Pelli Clarke Pelli designed the structure, and Cambridge built the curved panels along Frank Sinatra Boulevard. The project was completed in Fall 2009.
The curved steel framework method was designed by DNK Architects, Inc. and implemented by Cambridge for the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center parking garage. A Cambridge Parkade™ architectural mesh system clads the structure in a revolutionary basket weave design, featuring both longitudinal and latitudinal curves of woven metal fabric. The project was completed in August 2009.
