The glass can radically contribute to transform urban spaces. The best example is the result of this project in the little Basque village of Beasain (Spain). The Tvitec's crystal and the Vanceva® Color PVB Interlayer are basic ingredients for a new futuristic park, called "José Miguel Barandiaran". Tvitec supplied glass of different tones through the introduction of interlayers Vanceva laminated between two panes to form a system glazed lasting and easy to maintain. The aesthetic result is a funny and futuristic playground. The roof of the playground is as a skylight that resembles a kind of flying saucer. The spanish architectural glass transformer made a precise cutting work of the ovasl and different sizes shapes through their sophisticated numerical control machines (CNC) in the Cubillos' factory. The glass panes, 10 mm thick, was tempering and laminating. The vibrant colors of the Vanceva PVB interlayers are green, orange, yellow and blue. The project with laminated glass and Vanceva has generated an urban atmosphere much more festive.
