Many buildings are made with standard or system products. However, a whole new world opens up when the architect, in line with his or her design, designs parts that specifically match the architectural expression of the building. The hidden possibilities of glass are a great source of inspiration for this.
This book covers product development - Design & Build - in glass facades, glass roofs and even applications of cold bent and cold turned double laminated glass.
Based on many examples realized in the Netherlands and abroad, Mick Eekhout shows how to design new glass components and develop them step by step from wild ideas to certified building components that enhance the specific character of the building. Case studies from a.o.: Victoria & Albert Museum London, Markthal Rotterdam, Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam, Mauritshuis Den Haag, Kunstmuseum Den Haag, Glass Cube Santanter Madrid.
Mick Eekhout is professor Emeritus at the Technical University of Delft, founder and former director of Octatube
