Aintree Racecourse

Searching for a perfect material to cover the roof and walls of the new Earl of Derby and Lord Sefton grandstands at historic Aintree racecourse in England, a British design firm put its money on Corus Building Systems' new Kalzip XT aluminum standing seam.

The panels were designed using 3D CAD technology to ensure the correct twist as they followed the curvature of the gutters and fascia.

With all due respect, Akron, Ohio is about the last place you’d expect to find a provocative piece of modern architecture. Yet the Akron Art Museum’s John S. and James L.
