MagHansen's structural glazing system, Thermestra, was reconfigured to include very large glass supporting fins and forms the entire perimeter of architect Michael Hopkins' £34 million Dynamic Earth centre in Edinburgh's Old Town. Scotland's largest interactive visitor centre is a 6,300m 2, three-storey structure with a white fabric roof supported on four cable-stayed steel trusses. New York-based contractor Birdair was responsible for the roofing structure.
