| The aim of this paper is to identify and discuss challenges with the assumption that the SSG is isolated from the glass self-weight and provide a better understanding on the complexity of SSG systems.
| Elegant glazing - from walls to slabs - clads a residential tower.
| The “One Single Model” approach rises as the best tool to manage complex buildings through the different engineering branches.
Technical Considerations and Performance of Structural Glazing Glass Façade of High-Rise Building in Extreme Climate
| This case study describes the façade performance of the 2nd tallest building in China, the Ping An International Finance Center (Ping An IFC), located in the city of Shenzhen.
| The cold bending of glass in unique facades have been successfully completed in the past using structural silicone glazing (SSG) as the sole method of retention of the bending membrane.
| Façade transparency is becoming an increasingly significant design factor for both client and architect, which has aesthetic and comfort implications.
| Use of cold-bent and warped glass units in unitized curtain walling has been getting a state-of-the-art application for the last years.
| A Growing Market to Meet Present and Future Challenges
| The paper discusses some essential findings of two recent research studies on the durability and service life of structural silicone glazing sealants and structures.
| The Wilshire Grand’s Façade Design in L.A.’s Seismic Zone 4 Reality
| Glass panes adhesively-bonded to structural profiles allow for the design of stiff, robust and transparent sandwich structures.
| The refurbishment of Hall access involves the complete demolition of existing access for the construction of a new lobby with greater transparency. To get this new image, the architect choose a solution in structural glass, without other structure.
| 111 Main presented a unique challenge of façade design.
| The New Hype in Top End Architecture – an Examination of Latest Product Developments and Projects
| Use of cold-bent and warped glass units in unitized curtain walling is a state-of-the art application.
| In the following we’ll be limiting ourselves to the production of single pieces and small jobs of identical pieces, with applications predominantly in construction (e.g. windows, curtain walls, doors, showers, mirrors, kitchen splash backs) and…
| As companies strive to make their workplaces more flexible, interior glass has become a popular choice. Demountable interior glass also offers tax advantages.
| A facade shouldn’t just dictate how a building looks, but how it works — especially in the harsh climate of Saudi Arabia.
| Case Studies of the Aesthetic Qualities and Possibilities of Glass in Architectural Design.
| This paper presents a case study of an adaptive sunscreen facade and evaluation of its performance and occupant behavior.
