The main component of the new Maritime Museum in Lingang is composed of a large-hall encompassing a volume of some 63,000㎥ and is formed by two dual-curved shell-shaped surfaces and two cable-net facades spanned between them. Designed as a two-layer steel-grid shell the framework is supported at a total of four pivoted points. The two entwined shells face in opposite directions and touch at just a single point at a height of 40m. The overall height to the extended 'wing tips' is approximately 58m. Each of the respective opaque roof areas with aluminum panel cladding incorporates a highly transparent, dual-curved, pre-stressed cable-net facade with a width of up to 24m and a surface area of 1,000㎡.
