Mayfair Arcade

The proposal for a high end shopping arcade in Mayfair, London, will greatly enhance the currently unused potential of this prime location. Luxury retail happens on three floors, and cafes and restaurants with outdoor seating are covered by a new glass canopy across the street.

The canopy shape is a single surface structure suspended from above. The minimal surface is developed around an L-system diagram, distributing the tensile forces between the individual glass elements.
