Glass in Architecture explores how glass has made its unique contribution to architectural design. It reviews the history of the material from its beginnings to the present day, and goes on to describe what glass is and why it performs the way it does, how it is made, and its many variations. Then central section of the book presents twenty international case studies of contemporary glass architecture, each building illustrated with full-colour photographs and detail drawings, to show the range of the application of glass in a variety of situations, large and small. The potential for the future is also explored, as new materials move from the abstract world of technical research into realization. A detailed appendix provides a full review of the science of glass, with a section on design and performance.
