On the grounds of the Rhön-Klinikum in Bad Neustadt an der Saale, a large cable net was erected and covered with a system of glass shingles. The cable net system is elevated with wooden supports and tensioned with cables. Werner Sobek created the structural engineering for the cable net and developed the glass shingle system.

It is the first time ever that the two methods of glazing and steel cable net construction have been successfully combined.
