saw tooth roofs

chorochorocho  asked:

What are some buildings with a notable sawtooth roof? (preferably public buildings)

Saw-tooth roofs were first used in the 19th century to provide light (daylight in the absence of artificial light) to industrial building. Few of those early buildings could be qualified as “famous” except some like the Saltaire Weaving Shed (above) which has been adapted to retail uses.

Here are some of the few I could remember:

Riola Parish Church

Research and Technology Innovation Park

Cummins Engine Factory Extension

The Sackler Building

Museo Jumex
