2 Structural Glass In contemporary architecture there is an increasing demand for transparency. To fulfill this quest for transparency, glass is – besides its common use as a façade cladding – increasingly applied as a load bearing structural material. Early applications can be found in the 1980s and 1990s, for example the glass pavilion for the Sonsbeek art exhibition in Arnhem in the Netherlands in 1986 (Nijsse 2003). Ever since, structural glass technology has rapidly and significantly evolved, as is illustrated for instance by Nijsse (2003) and Wurm (2007).

The research demonstrates that the construction method has approached a state where it can be used for larger, more permanent structures. Important issues such as cladding and further structural testing, however, still have to be addressed before the system is completely functional. 7 Future Work There are numerous directions for future work. The most interesting and important is to continue to scale up the method’s application to larger spans. If the components themselves increase significantly in size folded aPET moulds will cease to be appropriate and so an alternative low material investment casting method that supports the production of unique parts will need to be found.

Eversmann et al. The following sections explain the basic mechanisms of such a system in order to get an understanding of the constructive feasibility. The main structural principles constraining the design also reveal the flexibility of the system and show the possibility to use it as a design driving principle. 2 Structural Glass In contemporary architecture there is an increasing demand for transparency.
