Using Glass as a Building Material
Architectural glass is glass that is used as a building material. It is most typically used as transparent glazing material in the building envelope, including windows in the external walls. Glass is also used for internal partitions and as an architectural feature. When used in buildings, glass is often of a safety type, which include reinforced, toughened and laminated glasses.

Innovative Construction Projects With Architectural Glass
Often transparent visually but structurally strong, architectural glass has been used for decades by builders as the best way to bring the outside indoors while still protecting a building from the elements.
It makes good sense then that modern day architects and designers have stretched these original building concepts to create buildings that clearly elevate our basic need of shelter to a high art.
Whether it is laser etched with art and design, uniquely distorted, designed with mirrors to reflect the sun or frosted to diffuse it, architectural glass has become an irreplacable component in the creation of amazing buildings.
