Zincalume corrugated metal is inherently utilitarian, but Magnusson says it has limitless potential as an architectural spec. “It’s interesting to contrast the raw quality of the material with refined detailing,” she notes. The metal sheets, shown on this EFM project, are coated with a 55 percent aluminum/zinc alloy to make them highly reflective and corrosion-resistant.
