A shimmering wall of titanium leaves is featured in the Olympic village Metro station of London. The giant tree-like 250m long leaf structures are constructed from GRP skins over GRP frames and cladded on the outside by titanium skins.

Composite material was chosen to create the giant leaf structures of the Stratford Shoal, London

Why are composites used here?

Aesthetics
Slender constructions and seamless façades are examples of aesthetics-driven design. These types of structures are impossible to construct with traditional materials.

Freedom of geometry
Double curved shapes are easily produced in composite materials at almost no extra cost. For production of limited series the relatively low moulding costs are an additional benefit.
