The entire concrete facade
The university building Helix contains over 15,000 m2 floor space and is named after the double helix structure of DNA. With a combination of extremely thin and lightweight concrete elements, microbeton assembled the unique facade around the construction like a shell, also using the Jordahl anchoring system. Elements include large (3600 x 1800 x 1800 mm) corner elements and extremely thin (15 mm) elements surrounding the glass windows.
