Format: Hardcover
Glass has become a major feature of modern architectural technical advances, offering enhanced thermal properties, structural innovations, and new installation limits. Professor Michael Bell and publications director Jeannie Kim blend forces to collect essays and technical illustrations paired with a DVD featuring highlights from a seminar in engineered transparency glass, with chapters packing in color photos and black and white diagrams for maximum results. Any college-level arts library strong in architecture needs this.
