About the book
After the last century`s call to a radical new architecture and urban life, glass architecture is more ubiquitous today than ever. A deeply engineered product, glass has re-emerged in a new light as a seemingly more culturally accepted material in design and construction.
So, this book represents the latest developments in the field of glass structures, façade engineering and solar technologies. A multitude of renowned international authors give a deep insight into the current
research work and illustrate the realization of outstanding projects.
This book presents the state of the art and addresses mainly engineers and architects in exchanging mutual needs and requirements pertaining to projects and case studies, energy and sustainability, design and construction as well as research and development in structural glazing.
