Protective coverage of the historical ruins at Swiss St. Maurice Abbey, by Swiss practice Savioz Fabrizzi Architectes.  The floating roof  is composed of a metal form with translucent corrugated paneling and a metal mesh screen and it is able to support 170 tons from -the regular tumbling- rocks from the cliff.
