| Few materials in human history have been made for as long or used in as many ways as glass. Ancient peoples molded it and poured it; later cultures discovered how to spin and blow glass into unique, dazzling shapes.
| Elegant glazing - from walls to slabs - clads a residential tower.
| Computer scientists develop a design tool that opens up the use of a cost-efficient technology for curved glass panels. The tool is based on a deep neural network and allows for the free-form design of beautiful glass façades.
| What is your vision of the future? What role will glass play in your vision?
| Held in Düsseldorf from 15 to 18 June 2021 glasstec will pick up on the latest glass trends related to shapes, formats and structures.
| Two plus two does not equal one!
| According to the American Bird Conservancy (ABC), glass collisions claim the lives of up to a billion birds annually in the U.S.
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.
| Decorative glass is limitless in design, colors, patterns, textures, and offers aesthetic brilliance in countless interior applications.
| Thin glass is the product of choice for electronic device displays. This glass is commonly expensive aluminosilicate glass whose properties are significantly enhanced when subjected to chemical tempering.
| This paper deals with the development and construction of a novel 2,308 sqm glass tube façade engineered by Eckersley O’Callaghan (EOC) as façade consultant and turned into reality by seele.
| Sky View is a twin tower development with skybridge and skywalk observation deck located in Downtown Dubai, close walking distance from Burj Khalifa.
| In this paper, we present the workflow of design and construction of Chaoyang Park Plaza tower façade located in Beijing, China.
| When I first met Sophie Pennetier, I was struck by her expressed influences and her remarkable experiential pedigree. She cites Peter Rice’s brilliant book, An Engineer Imagines, as the inspiration for her engineering pursuits.
| Contemporary architectural transparency (understood as the optical property of the material) is constantly being redefined and, over the last decade, new design trends have developed related to transparent façades in architecture.
| This paper demonstrates the feasibility of training machine learning algorithms on structural data and their potential application as a predictive tool in early stage design work.
| This document refers to a small explanation of the Auditorium execution process from the design and development of the technical solution, testing, manufacturing, to its final execution.
| For over two decades and following a century of efficient, functional and often orthogonal architecture, we are experiencing the extensive search for ever more complex building geometries and expressive architectural forms.
| As a modern society, we’re spending about 90% of our time indoors – at home, in offices or commuting. How is it possible to get access to daylight, when we can’t naturally be outside? By making buildings more transparent.
| The paper will provide an overview of the currently applied engineering approach in the industry for curved hot bent glass in the absence of standards and codes.
