Cantilever of aerofoils beyond last support

Aluminium Aerofoil Fins
The length of the Infiniti fins ranged from just 2.8 m to 28 m, where they were installed to the full height of the building. Indeed, the design of the Infiniti Fin system allowed the fins to cantilever 1.3 m past the last support.
The horizontal spacing between fins also varied from 0.9 m at the south-west corner to 4.3 m in the north-west corner. To the south, the fins are confined to lower levels, contrasting with a kinetic screen above.
To introduce an interesting external aesthetic, each Infiniti fin was polyester powder coated to one of five complementary colours, ranging from sky blue to bright green.
The fins, which feature aluminium end caps, are secured back to the structure using 415 cast stainless steel brackets, all provided by Levolux.
