Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013

41 X Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013 - Category 1: Buildings Category 1: Buildings 1 Short description │Residential Building with Tram Depot The new Kalkbreite building is situated in the centre of the city of Zurich. The building integrates a tram stabling area and is determined by its complex geometry and the wide variety of uses. The difficult geometry of the plot and the requirements for the tram shed led to a number of highly complex challenges for the load-bearing structure. For example, the building must span the full width of the exit rails from the tram shed. This is to be implemented by inserting three-storey steel trusses into the walls.
