The material was flexible in 0.8mm aluminum, offering both sharp corners and large curves for a variety of shapes in the space.

On the road
We (finally) got back on the road! In October we were in DC talking facade design and construction at the Facades+ Conference with The Architect’s Newspaper. It was a fantastic morning of education, discovery, and renewed conversations with old friends.
We proudly sponsored the 39th Annual Sandcastle Classic in San Francisco on 10/23, alongside our friends at Woods Bagot! Teams of architects, engineers, contractors, designers, corporations and local elementary school students work together to build giant sand sculptures. The funds raised by teams and sponsors make it possible for Leap to continue providing arts programs to Bay Area schoolchildren.
