Mick Eekhout lectures at Glasstec

The international conference engineered transparency in association with the Glasstec fair in Düsseldorf (Germany) offers a unique opportunity, combining presentations about advanced glass technologies in architecture and structural engineering with an exhibition of world leading technology in glass production, processing and products.The international conference aims to present research and latest developments on the architectural and structural use of glass construction, facade engineering and solar technology.

Engineers, designers, architects and researches are invited to participate at the conference.

The topics on glass construction are: strength and stability, laminates and composite designs and bent and free-formed glass.

Mick Eekhout who is both general director of Octatube and professor at the chair of product development at the Technical University Delft, will speak about this last topic, bent and free-formed glass. In a lecture about the cold twisting of glass he will elaborate on this topic. Some of the Octatube projects with shaped glass will pass in review. From an early example when the free forming of glass was still in its infancy (Stadhuis Alphen aan de Rijn, 2002) towards projects where the twisting of glass has been taken to its limits, in terms of bending (Zuidpoort Canopy, Delft) or in combination with an all glass structure: cold twisted isolation panels on top of 11 meters long glass fins (Victoria & Albert Museum, London).

On this page you can read more about shaped glass.
