We’re delighted to share AUDI AG’s new sustainable dealership concept store in Germany featuring an approximately 500 m² facade of Made of Air’s novel biochar composite. The material is made from >85% atmospheric carbon content and acts as an engineered carbon sink.
By replacing a typical aluminium facade system, Made of Air’s facade prevents the re-emission of ca. 12t of CO2 from waste biomass and avoids emissions. The building has been awarded Gold Status by the DGNB German Sustainable Building Council.
LED provided structural facade engineering services including fastener testing and Review for the design team, Made of Air, Berlin.

Marc Fornes and The Very Many’s striking steel amphitheatre pavilion has broken ground in Argeles-Sur-Mer, France. Engineered by LED, the dramatic computational sculpture uses parametric pleated ribs to gain stiffness. Combined with its curved profile in section, the system gains the structural benefits of a compressive shell. It opens to the public in September 2015 and will provide an informal amphitheatre for the city.
