| Christoph Timm, Principal at SOM New York, shared insights on decarbonizing the built environment and the evolving landscape of sustainable construction.
Get the light & keep the warmth - A highly insulating, translucent aerogel glass brick for building envelopes
| New translucent, structural and modular façade component.
| BIPV represents an important field to explore, since PV systems have an enormous potential within the context of architectural and urban design.
| The trend in modern architecture towards a steady optimisation of building envelopes is continuing. Beside its function as a design element, a façade also contributes to the building’s energy balance.
| A new design approach for loadbearing monolithic glass components of reduced annealing time
| Within this research, two sets of real-scale laminated banister panels with the embedded connection were tested.
| The economy globalizes. The industries concentrate. The productions become uniform. Cultural specificities disappear. About architecture and glass in architecture, it is the same phenomenon.
A Novel, Demountable Structural Glass System Out of Dry-Assembly, Interlocking Cast Glass Components
| Combining transparency with a high compressive strength, glass enables us to make diaphanous load-bearing compressive members, from beams and columns to free-standing facades and entire glass structures.
| Glass can form and shape a space, creating transparent architecture that can make you feel closer to the outside world.
| This poetry in architecture, one of the most advanced structures in the Nordic countries, Oodi Library exalts the very elements of glass, wood and steel that work in balance as a free-standing masterpiece.
| Research deals with the effect of using color in aesthetic taste of architectural interfaces as one of the most important problems affecting the architectural form.
| Unitised Façade System Designed with a Highly Transparent Façade of Low G-value Combined with Blast Requirements
| For years and years research, development and discussions have been made on the safety of glass structures.
Capital C, Geometric Optimization of a Free-Form Steel Gridshell Towards Planar Quadrilateral Glass Units
| This paper focuses on the geometric optimization of the free-form gridshell towards planar quad glass units.
| In today’s architecture the bending of glass plays an important role in achieving free forms in modern façades.
| Shells made of structural glass are beautiful objects from both the aesthetics and the engineering point of view.
| The structural glass for this globe structure is created with laminated double curved glass panels patch supported by a steel structure.
| Renzo Piano Building Workshop designed a 290,000 sf museum celebrating the artistry and technology of film, becoming the world’s first museum and event space devoted to the Motion Picture.
| The post-breakage behavior of glass beams is not easy to predict, therefore Octatube performed a range of tests on different glass fins varying the test setup.
| Thin glass offers a promising prospect for lightweight façades with reduced use of raw materials, also opening up entirely new perspectives for architectural expression.
