Designing with Glass - Great Glass Buildings jellemzők

Photographer and writer Peter Hyatt with his partner, Jenny, were asked by Images to search the world for exciting contemporary structures built with glass. The result is a stunning collection of over thirty-five international glass design projects, documented in this new publication. Many of the great names in architecture are featured here, including the work of Sir Norman Foster, Renzo Piano, Tadao Ando and Dominique Perrault. Each project demonstrates the architect's extraordinary skill in designing with glass and their ingenuity for often complex detailing. Projects range from residential to public and commercial, with award-winners such as Scogin Elam and Bray's Nomentana Residence, Maine, USA and impressive architectural innovations including Santiago Calatrava's City of Arts and Sciences, Valencia, Spain.
