After 60 years of providing shelter, the Wellington Building’s roof needed to be replaced. The salvaged copper scrap was then used to create a sculptural wall design in the Parliamentary Library of the building. 13,000 square feet of aged copper was cut from the existing roof, crated, sorted, flattened, perforated and then bent on a break press to provide the sound attenuation and sculptural finish for the walls of the Parliamentary Library in the building. The folded perforated aged copper lining and the folded, sculptural aged copper shells take their inspiration from the triangulated roof scape of the Parliament Hill Government Buildings.
