Gothic in glass

The Stiftskirche (collegiate church) in Stuttgart is one of the city’s historical landmarks. The church has been restored with a complex steel and glass construction in the inside, creating an impression of light and space. The construction used products manufactured by Carl Stahl, the Swabian specialist for stainless steel cables and cable constructions. The company combined elements from its I-SYS stainless steel architecture programme with special designs to form an optimised unit in both static equilibrium and construction terms.
In co-operation with the Institute of Fördertechnik (Materials-Handling Technology) at the University of Stuttgart, some of the main parts of the construction, including stainless steel cables, joints and tie-rods, were given special approval by the building inspectorate. Carl Stahl’s success lies in his extensive expertise in architecturally harmonious and well thought-out stainless steel cable constructions.
