Summary

A structural glass facade is a glass wall in which the glass itself is part of the building structure. The fundamental technology of structural faYade systems has undergone a transition over the past decade from an emergent, experimental building form to a mature, fully robust technology. The book documents, defines, and categorizes the current state of the art in long-span glass faYade design and construction, with a focus on structural systems, glass cladding options and implementation strategies for innovative design. With illustrations and case studies, the book discusses designs and design practices; engineering issues; material, process and fabrication considerations, installation means and methods, and project delivery strategies. A must for architects, industrial designers, and interior designers.
