Japanese architect Kohki Hiranuma has come up with a design for the “world’s first seamless glass structure” to be used as an entrance into the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale.
Hiranuma’s ‘Glastecture’ installation is built from bent glass that seems to have no joins but is in fact held together by resin.
The load-bearing structure has a looping form that according to Hiranuma will appear to change shape throughout the day as it reflects sunlight.
Glastecture is proposed for the entrance courtyard of the 18th century Palazzo Mora and will make up part of the Time Space Existence event.
The event will be held within the spaces of two palazzos and exhibit the work of architects from six different continents.
