About This Course:
Due to its translucence, glass in architecture generates a pleasant and roomy spatial atmosphere. The material meets today’s generation’s desire for more transparency: It allows for both a view outward as well as inward and lends a sense of space. In this learning program, attendees will learn about the use of architectural glass for building facades and interior spaces, and their potential benefits of their applications, from performance and sustainability to aesthetics. Attendees will also learn how collaboration among the design team can address goals for designing with glass, and how it can contribute to the occupants’ well-being and comfort. As well, an overview of the responsible manufacturing process will be offered; and the large-scale energy reduction through the use of efficient glass products will be discussed.
Learning Objective 1
Discuss how the use of architectural glass for building facades and interior spaces enhance the building occupants’ well-being and comfort in the indoor environments.
Learning Objective 2
Describe how a variety of architectural glass products as well as collaboration of the design team throughout the life of the project can support performance, sustainability, and aesthetic goals.
Learning Objective 3
Attendees will learn about the responsible manufacturing process, and how the use of the efficient glasses can help reduce the carbon footprint and improve the efficiency of energy usage.
Learning Objective 4
Selected real-life projects will be discussed to demonstrate the ways in which designing with architectural glass plays a pivotal role in modern architecture’s emphasis on improved human comfort and occupant well-being- both physical and emotional.
