A modern canopy to protect the famous and listed portico of the Rubens House from the elements. It consists of a caisson of bead blasted stainless steel filled with lead as a counterweight. The cantilevered roof is made of triple armoured glass sheets. A good example of how modern architecture can reinforce the old.
