Glass in Building

Principles, Applications, Examples

Innovative use of glass in architecture

Glass in buildings provides designers with fascinating creative options. It has long been used as a transparent room partition, but it can of course be so much more: Glass safeguards against crashes, protects against explosions, repels armed attacks, creates accessible areas on roofs, in stairwells and galleries, and even carries the system load within a structure. In combination with numerous finishing methods and coatings, glass also fulfils high structural requirements. This volume provides a compact, clear and descriptive overview of the basic principles governing the appropriate structural use of this ambivalent building material. The limits to its design uses are set by physics and the law: This book therefore also addresses the characteristic values of the base and finishing products as well as the building regulations. The theoretical section is completed with a selection of superbly executed projects.
