Curtain Wall AA 100 Q Twist
The AA 100 Q Twist is based on the facade system AA 100 Q developed by Alcoa Architectuursystemen for constructing straight, slanted and segmented facades. Characteristic to the AA 100 Q Twist is the split into a stiff rear profile that connects parallelly to the system of floors and walls, and a glazing profile that bends with the bulging glass surface and always lies flat against the window pane. This allows the vertical and horizontal surfaces of the AA 100 Q Twist to flow into each other. The invention of the AA 100 Q Twist signifies a breakthrough in this area. A curved glass facade with an incorporated pivoting window, opens even more application possibilities for this new form of free architecture.
Problems with standard systems:
varying connection to the building twisting of large profiles with complex cross cuts is very expensive this is especially true when all the ones with varying radii are bent with a different 3D
the back profile has a simple cross cut and only needs to be bent 2D the glass profile can be bent manually because of the large radius of the facades connection to wall, column, floor can be standardized to, e.g., right angles or parallel simple measuring and positioning the windows consist of standard components
