Sculpture Vela VII, Puerto Venecia

Zaragoza, España

Structural typology: SPECIAL BUILDINGS
Date: October, 2012
Owner: Ayuntamiento de Zaragoza
Construction: Fademesa SL
Scope: concept design
Architect: Arturo Berned

Corten steel sculpture formed by three main bodies that are in contact with each other in a single point. The start of the sculpture is also materialized through a single element (main pillar). The sheets have a thickness of 10mm and the union between them is done with welding with preparation of edges so that the finish is correct.

The dimensions and edge of the isolated footing that makes the foundation are determined by the need to compensate for the large tipping moments that appear in the structure due mainly to the wind and the low vertical load.
