Obispado de Málaga, ConcursoProject Type
Following a call for tender, our company drafted a project to fix the roof’s moisture problems of Malaga Cathedral. Our glass envelope design would have protected the roof allowing visitors to go up there and enjoy both the own cathedral’s roof structure and the wonderful view of the city. Apart from that, the protection wouldn’t have jeopardized the domes as it will comprise a glass covering supported on a stainless steel metallic structure. To access the roof a panoramic elevator would have been installed at Sagrario gardens, next to the Cathedral, from where anyone could access directly to the roof. This innovative idea did not go through for reasons beyond our control and the project was finally commissioned to a brickwork company that offered a solution based on a basic brick cladding that was obviously insufficient after a while. This only gives more credit to our proposal despite not being developed.
