Glass stands for openness and transparency. In contemporary glass architecture these associations are utilized in a subtle and highly intentional way. Some buildings appear low-key and reduced to express elegance and seriousness, other provide deep insights to set a stage for profiling and a vivid exchange between inside and outside. In either case innovative glass buildings generate unexpected perspectives, individual communication channels and a temporary feeling of freedom in an actually closed spatiality. In this title about 60 projects from all around the world will be presented with texts, photos as well as sketches and drawings.
