/// Glass 5.0
As one event at Glasstec the Architektenkammer NW and TU Delft are organize in collaboration with the Messe Düsseldorf an annual conference, focusing the design potentials and newest developments in the area of glass construction.
By naming the event in 2014 “Glass 5.0” the focus was clearly beyond the known themes of bolt fixings, large glass components or twin face facades, asking, what are the development for a glassed future. Lectures be Paulo Cruis (University of Minho, Portugal), Graham Dott (Arup, London), Winy Maas ( MVRDV Rotterdam), Dirk Engelen (Crepain Binst / Antwerp), Mathias Rudolph /Transsolar, Stuttgart) and Jens Witffort (Wittfort Architekten / Stuttgart), Jürgen Bartenschlag (Sauerbruch Hutton, Berlin), Nathalie Rozencwajg (rare architects, London) and Martin Haas (haascookzemmrich, Stuttgart) did give project insides but also – and here it becomes for interesting – thoughts about future trends in design and construction, allowing new directions of stacked glass constructions, pneumatic supported thin glass principles or just new designs for Bowl windows, reinterpreting aesthetics and special experiences.
A nice event – see you again in 2 years.
