Glass is a tried-and-true building material that has lent beauty and style to structures for nearly 2000 years. Whether intended as such or not, glazing is an important component of biophilic design, facilitating daylighting and providing views and fresh air to building occupants. In the past several decades, glazing technologies have been developed which allow for greater and fine-tuned control of solar heat gain, visual light transmittance, air leakage, acoustics, and more. Increasingly, glazing is an important consideration in the creation of resilient buildings that protect occupants from extreme weather events and impacts. The technical, aesthetic, and energy characteristics of today’s glazing systems make the potential applications for glass in design projects. The Glass and Glazing Academy will help you keep pace with the latest technological developments in glass and its many functions in architectural design, and how glazing systems can help support human health, productivity, and well-being.
