Innovations in building envelopes have long been a major driver in pushing the boundaries of skyscraper design. In recent years, the properties and opportunities of glass have been the driver of innovation in this realm, with new concepts of laminated glass, curved glass, and strength testing for glass creating new opportunities to experiment with the form. This session examined these concepts in detail.
