Ian Ritchie - Leipzig Glass Hall
This book tells the story of the Leipzig Glass Hall, designed by Ian Ritchie Architects. Erected in 1996 the building is the largest glass hall to be built in the 20th century. Emulating the publication based on Joseph Paxton's Crystal Palace, originally published in 1852, this beautifully produced volume - designed by Ian Ritchie - examines the historical background of the project and reveals the fascinating story of the design's evolution.
From the steel structure to such details as the vertically sliding escape doors and the cleaning robots, all aspects of the design are explored.New photography shows the building to dramatic effect and in a fold-out section the original construction drawings are included to give the reader a full understanding of this remarkable structure.
