We are pretty lucky to have the roofing technology to pull these off successfully. The pioneers to modern design were not so lucky, and unfortunately, left us to carry the lingering concerns of would be clients.

Denver had a grand and gorgeous
hyperbolic paraboloid roof, part of the downtown Zeckendorf Plaza (Denver's
answer to Rockefeller Plaza). It was designed by IM Pei, part of a department
store, but demolished in the name of "progress" in transforming the
place to a hotel. (for photos, just google "Zeckendorf Plaza Denver")

For anyone in Victoria, Australia looking for a stunning colorbond roof, I was extremely happy with roofing transformations. It came up beautiful and cheaper than others. www.roofingtransformations.com.au
