Glass architecture – a fascinating training topic

Enthralling lectures and present glass construction topics at the architects and planner day of Thiele Glas in Wermsdorf.   It has been a complete success: The series of events ‘glass meets architecture’ entered the second round.

At the premises of the Saxon Thiele Glas plant in Wermsdorf 35 architects and planners took part in the sophisticated and diversified program around the subject glass-architecture.

Jan-Hendrik Evers opened the advanced training event with the latest market data. The architect’s consultant of Thiele Glas subsequently guided through the program. In the first lecture functional coatings on the glass surface were in the center. Jürgen Künsting of Saint-Gobain Glass explained vividly and interactively what coated glass is able to afford. Especially the thermal insulation and solar protection IGU were comprehensively highlighted based on the aspects of summer heat protection. In his second lecture Mr. Künsting gave future prospects of the coatings of tomorrow. The first module of topics was completed by additional remarks of Jan-Hendrik Evers regarding the various design opportunities of glass.

Following the lunch break Mr. Peter Hufen, general manager of HVF silicone specialists GmbH & Co. KG, spoke about structural glazing in the field of façade construction. The theoretical part of the event was rounded off by Mr. Dipl. Ing. Sebastian Rücker. As expert in examination and technical assessment of glass constructions, he is particularly familiar with the latest standard of glass measurements, DIN 18008. Additionally, he knew how to demonstrate the relevant contents and changes of this standard to the training attendees.

The architects and planner day reached its peak during the concluding company tour. The participants were obviously impressed by the dimension and size of the modern safety glass production site as well as the produced glasses. Two hours the production manager, Mr. Stefan Barthel, guided the interested visitors through the halls before a successful day came to an end in the early hours of the evening.
