The Vidal de Canellas building is located within the Universal Exhibition Zaragoza 2008 site. It is part of the complex nowadays called City of Justice of Zaragoza.
The project reutilises the structure of some existing former pavilions of the Exhibition, and from those a completely new complex has been created.
The 4 floors high building is wrapped by a Schüco FW50+ stick curtain wall system, with the unusual characteristic that part of the facade is made up of 7500 mm long mullions in one piece. The 175 mm deep mullions have been reinforced in order to get the necessary inertia to achieve the large spans. Polygonal curtain wall form the curvature of the plan, following the design originally composed of three curves with different radius to cover a circumference arc of 180 degrees.
