Glass is one of the most ubiquitous and extensively researched building materials. Despite the critical role it has played in modern architecture in the last century we have yet to fully comprehend the cultural and technological effects of this complex and sophisticated building material. Engineered Transparency presents a portfolio of projects featuring cutting-edge glass designs by today’s most innovative architects including SANAA’s acclaimed Glass Pavilion at the Toledo Museum of Art and Steven Holl’s Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City.
