IO AT Types of Mesh for Sun Protection

KPMB, an 80-personnel architectural firm in Toronto, Canada, utilizes IO's AT 15 type of mesh and installed an exterior shading to serve as sun protection in one part of the McGill University building as shown in the photo above. The metal fabrics are built in large panels situated slightly slanting from one another. IO's AT 15 type of mesh are designed to apply 50% open area to provide enough shade. What caught my attention to write about this photo is how it displays the mechanical balance and durability of the metal fabric used as large panels in this project.
