This issue of a+u magazine focusses on glass facades and the technical elements related to that.

Modern glass facades are technically demanding and fascinating in design. Glass as a building material has diverse characteristics, even contrary on occasion, and architects are increasingly using the high design potential of fully glazed facades in representative building projects outside of the typical office typology. An essay by Christian Schittich opens an exploration of this transformative element of architecture through fourteen works designed by as many architects.

Projects range from a Shanghai tea house by Atelier Deshaus and Mikkelsen Arkitekter’s Rambøll Headquarters in Copenhagen, to works by Atelier Kempe Thill, Wiel Arets, Pezo von Ellrichshausen and more.
