Description

Glass is one of humanity’s oldest materials and is closely connected with our cultural development. Glass also shapes architecture, offering architects scope for playing with the relationship between “inside and outside” and how people relate to space and nature. It influences interior light and warmth, offering special spatial atmospheres and views. Glass needs other materials to hold, carry and support it, so using it requires an integrative approach involving various disciplines. Good glass architecture is the result of a successful interaction between design, technology, construction and implementation. Depending on its composition, glass appears transparent or translucent, coloured or clear.

“best of DETAIL: Glass” presents highlights from DETAIL on the topic of ‘Glass’. Starting with fundamental questions, the book offers a theoretical basis, details on many practically implemented projects, and plenty of inspiration and examples of successful structural solutions.

  • Integrative work processes for successful  glass architecture
  • Transparent experiments
  • Material developments
  • Glass – mediating between inside and outside, between people and nature.
