The Berkeley glass pavillion

Monday 23rd of November 2009

The Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge, London, is scheduled to be under refurbishment in the near future. As part of the works, it is planned to build a new entrance canopy / glass pavillion designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners.

This paper describes the design, testing and construction of the pavillion, focusing on its carbon fibre composite structural members and its innovative glass-honeycomb sandwich panels that were specially developed for this project.
