Glass and Glazing Design Academy
Brought to you by National Glass Association

  8 AIA LU/HSW; 2 AIA LU/Elective

Glass has been a part of building design for nearly 2000 years, but in recent years its use has remarkably increased. There are several characteristics of glass that make it especially desired at this time, including it’s recyclability, resistance to corrosion, and its role in the reduction of energy consumption in buildings. Continuing advances in glass technology mean that architects and designers worldwide have been turning to glass to meet requirements such as thermal comfort, solar and glare control, and to meet seismic or wind conditions. The technical, aesthetic, and energy characteristics of today’s glazing systems make the potential applications of glass in design projects nearly unlimited. The Glass and Glazing Academy will help you keep pace with the rapid evolution of glass in architectural design.
