Product story

This book tells the complete story of the great Leipzig Glass Hall, designed by Ian Ritchie Architects. Erected in 1996, it is the largest glass palace in the world. This beautifully produced and printed book - 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 the detail of the vertically sliding escape doors and the cleaning robots, all aspects of the design work are explored. New photography shows the building to dramatic effect and in a fold-out section the original construction drawings are illustrated to give the reader an understanding of this remarkable glass building
