Abstract (en)

The wall (1) comprises a plurality of panels (7) each having respective suspension points, as well as a load-bearing structure (2), usually constituted by a tension structure, with a plurality of support elements (8, 8') which cooperate with the panels (7) at the suspension points. At least some of the panels (7), which are preferably constituted by glazed panels, have associated support elements (8') which are mounted on the load-bearing structure with a capability for movement so as to enable the respective panel (7) to be oriented between a closure position in which the panel is flush with the adjacent panels and at least one open position in which the respective panel is displaced relative to the adjacent panels, thus defining an opening in the wall (1). <IMAGE>
