With an invaluable series of programs on the lineup at GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo next month, there couldn’t possibly be another reason to attend, could there? As part of the expo, GlassBuild is collaborating with the National Glass Association’s (NGA) Glass Magazine and The Architect’s Newspaper, bringing over 150 architects to Atlanta for the opportunity to earn five (5) AIA CEU credits at Glass+Performance! Register now for a day of meaningful education and experience the cutting-edge technology and high-performance products the glass and glazing industry has to offer.
If you’ve seen the giant etched-glass dragon snaking across the ceiling at Shun Lee Palace in New York, you’ve glimpsed of the handiwork of Philip Vourvoulis, an expert in architectural glass known for his work on projects ranging from museums to residences to restaurants. On April 12, Vourvoulis will lead the workshop “The Challenges of Glass Architecture: Controlling the Appearance and Performance of Glass in the Building Facade” part of Facades + PERFORMANCE, an upcoming conference on high-performance building enclosures sponsored by The Architect’s Newspaper.
At the workshop, Vourvoulis will be joined by Christoph Timm of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Bruce Milley of Guardian Industries, and Nick Bagatelos of BISEM. In the form of an interactive panel discussion, the group will explore the latest in architectural glass materials and processes, including new printing processes, electrochromic products, and other high-performance glazings. Using case studies, the workshop will highlight strategies to optimize performance while maintaining aesthetic control. This workshop offers 4 LU/HSW AIA CE credits.
