1 chung taiThe Chung Tai Chan Temple in Taiwan is a new spiritual centre dominated by a huge pagoda.
Positioned in visual contrast to the monumental design of the building, two filigree plane cable structures offer a nearly unobstructed view of the sitting Buddha inside.
Each facade has a surface area of approximately 410 m² and consists of rectangular point supported fully tempered glass panels with a lateral length of 1.50 m.

As a concession to the high local wind loads, the prestressed cables of the single layer cable net structure are each designed for loads of 200 kN.
