| Thin glass offers the possibility for lightweight and flexible glass façades that could change shape depending on external conditions.
| Theoretical Study on a Highly Transparent Building Made with Long-Spanned TVT Portals Braced with Hybrid Glass-Steel Panels
| The paper presents an overview of the work completed within the on-going research project “Structural safety of glass components” carried out at the Silesian University of Technology, Lund University and RISE Research Institutes of Sweden.
| Following a short overview outlining key design objectives, the fabrication process of an opaque composite glass panel is described in detail.
| Façade transparency is becoming an increasingly significant design factor for both client and architect, which has aesthetic and comfort implications.
| Glass-Sandwich-Facades are not conceived with new materials but are a new and innovative combination of proven components and technology – glass, structural adhesive, sandwich panels and window systems.
| Glass panes adhesively-bonded to structural profiles allow for the design of stiff, robust and transparent sandwich structures.
| Researchers and engineers search for solutions to achieve transparent lightweight structures combined with high structural performance.
| This paper will describe the design, detailing, testing and construction of structural glass beams as part of load bearing grid shell structure in the newly built Zaryadye Park in Moscow, Russia.
| To provide stiffness, shading and privacy with abundant daylight and a feeling of openness for restaurant extensions and an entrance canopy to a London hotel, we used glass sandwich panels with aluminium honeycomb core.
| If you’re looking to create an eye-catching and unique design feature, decorative glass is a really effective and attention-grabbing way to do it.
| The initial design concept called upon a structure that drew inspiration from the surrounding environment and then extending and integrating it in a way that did not detract from the beauty of the site.
