Many buildings are made with standard or system products. However, a whole new world opens up when the architect, in line with his or her design, designs parts that specifically match the architectural expression of the building. The hidden possibilities of glass are a great source of inspiration for this.
In his new book ‘Glass Design Innovations in Architecture’ Mick Eekhout – founder and former director of Octatube – illustrates product development in glass facades, glass roofs and applications of cold bent and cold turned double laminated glass.
Based on many examples realized in the Netherlands and abroad, Mick demonstrates how to design new glass components and develop them step by step from wild ideas to certified building components that enhance the specific character of the building.
Get inspired by our case studies from Victoria & Albert Museum London, Markthal Rotterdam, Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam, Mauritshuis The Hague, Kunstmuseum The Hague, Glass Cube Santanter Madrid and others.
