HALL No.8 has very long proportion: 18m width and 92m length. 18m width is divided into 6m and 12m span. 92m length is divided by every 4m. This structure module was selected in order to put various use and size of rooms rationally. 4m span structure are composed with repetition of brace structure and non-brace structure. In every span of brace-structure vertical equipment shafts are set and this system of repetition guarantees that any have at least one vertical shaft. It also become possible to change the use or size of rooms easily and renew old equipment in the future. This brace structure / vertical shafts are sandwiched by waved glass (outside) and plastic panel (inside) to realize well-lighted interior spaces. Fluorescent lamps between glass and plastic panels work for lighting at night.
