Abstract

The proliferation of glass elements in building assemblies yields an endless array of fabricated components that are by nature glass-composites, resultants of myriad material techniques and processes. Every component parameter is an opportunity for detailed material definition in the service of a specific Architecture. Front designs and deploys glass technologies through creative and pragmatic collaboration seeking with our partners to opportunistically engage such materials in appropriate and specific ways so as to realize a broad set of Architectural intentions. The following are a series of illustrative projects using both conventional and specialized techniques in the service of a distinct set of project requirements and ambitions.
