THE ECHO OF NATURE
The Harbin Opera House is situated in the wet-lands of the Songhua River in Northeast China and is designed to reᴀect the force and spirit of the northern city’s untamed wilderness and rigid climate, with an appearance of snowy mountains. In February 2016, the opera house was named one of the world’s best buildings by ArchDaily*. Sika China has played its part in creating this amazing landmark, using its silicone sealants to bond the aluminum cladding and glass facades
The 57 km-long Gotthard base tunnel in Switzerland is both a novelty and a remarkable achievement in tunnel engineering. It is the longest rail tunnel in the world and passes through one of the highest Alpine massifs. It runs some 2,000 meters below the mountain summits and, even at its highest point, is still only around 550 meters above sea level. The new rail section will reduce the time that massive freight and modern high-speed trains need to travel from Zurich to Milan by around one hour. -
