Morning Session (Choose one from the following)
A. Curtain Wall Systems from Sketch to Completion 101
B. Advanced Detailing for High-Performance Envelopes
C. Disrupting the Status Quo: Discover How Bold Thinkers Design, Develop, and Deliver Tomorrow’s Complex Facades
D. Cold-Bent Glass – Trouble with the Curve
Cold bending of glass allows for glass curvature to be achieved with relatively low additional cost, but is limited to single curvature applications. The development of new computational tools in the design of free-form architectural geometry allows for double curved forms to be approximated using singly-curved faceting. These developments open up a large array of applications for cold-bent glass where previously geometric restrictions were prohibitive.
In this workshop, basic principles of cold-bending are discussed, allowing architects, façade engineers and structural designers to consider the potential realm of application of these types of solutions. Computational tools for the design of cold-bent glass solutions, and design methodologies will be explained in detail. Attendees will be presented with the architectural and structural design of several case studies, typical detailing, system requirements and performance data.
