The Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME Center) is a well-known LEED Gold Certification Class A building. The two 40-storey twin towers are connected by a 10-storey central structure. It was completed in 1987.
Healthy daylight, free solar heating, excellent thermal insulation and an unimpeded view of nature: these are the attributes of the modern wood and glass house whose expansive glass façades make nature a constant companion.
The facade of yellow brick decorative art style, unified transparent rectangular glass window and simple three-dimensional vertical line decoration, represent the modern historical background of Shanghai and high-end design aesthetic feeling.
Designed by Paleko Arch Studija, the University Library is located on the outskirts of Vilnius near to a pine forest, which inspired the architect to give the building a spatial feel – cosy inside spaces linked to nature.
Architects Juan Coll-Barreu and Daniel Gutierrez of Coll-Barreu Arquitectos have created a remarkable-looking structure, which makes clever use of solar control glass – Guardian SunGuard Solar Light Blue 52.
The new name reflects the expansion to a more comprehensive exhibit range, including window & door, facade materials, aluminium profile, accessories, hardware, equipment of window door & facade products.
Guardian SunGuard® High Performance (HP) solar control glass (HP Light Blue 63) was chosen for the glazed end walls of the building, as well as for the strips of glazing that run along the side of the building.
As part of a ground-breaking scheme to transform the Here East Broadcast Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the team at Hawkins Brown Architects came up with a simple concept to break down the building’s bulk: ‘crust’ and ‘core’.
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.
The performance of the glazed sections of the facade is essential for providing the maximum possible comfort for the building occupants, while minimizing the energy and resource demands of the building.
As a manufacturer and supplier of monolithic, laminated and insulated glass panels, we often produce larger panels that must use heat-treated components, ionoplast interlayers and multi-layer assemblies.
