Glass Construction: Advanced Technologies

Wednesday, June 8, 2016

Glass holds a special place in the canon of construction materials due to its significant and seductive properties of brilliance and optics. Glass greatly expands the lexicon of architectural expression; affording it transparency and sheerness. The technology behind glass fabrication and installation is significant. This presentation looks at the advanced applications of glass construction: from both a design and constructional perspective. Limitations and opportunities will be examined.
