To achieve the continuous diagrid steel structure of Jewel, more than 9,000 pieces of glass panels, about 18,000 pieces of steel beams and over 6,000 steel nodes were used to create the facade. The facade which weighs more than 6,000 tonnes is supported by a ring of 12m tall tree-like columns and a ring beam at the edge of the roof.
