The Cloud, Rome, Italy

Atex® textile membrane produced by Valmiera Glass UK Ltd. has been used in the construction of the new conference centre in Rome designed by Massimiliano Fuksas. The conference centre resembles a giant rectangular glass box, which includes an audience room – an unusually shaped structure made of steel frame, covered with the silicone glass fibre textile membrane Atex® coating manufactured by Valmiera Glass UK Ltd. Due to its innovative form the centre is now called “La Nuvola” or the Cloud, and the Atex® 2000 TRL WS14 textile membrane of 24,000 square meters was used for its design.
