 Bercy 2 Shopping Center | Renzo Piano Building Workshop Architects

The shape of this shopping centre was determined by its topography: a series of immediately adjacent motorway junctions carve out a space into which a curved, silver form has been fitted.

The building’s highly visible 2,000 sq m roof is covered with 27,000 modular shiny steel panels of sophisticated geometry allowing for a maximum standardization of components.

Apart from its aesthetic impact, the metal plays an important role in insulating the structure by deflecting sunlight away and creating a shaded, ventilated roof, beneath which a chamber of air slows down heat exchange with the outside.
