Bending Glass in the Parametric Age

Manipulations of glass that have long seemed speculative are becoming possible with combinations of hot or cold bending, thermal or chemical tempering, and lamination. Though many applications require costly heat-curving using gravity, energy-efficient cold-forming techniques are contributing to the geometries of many striking new buildings today.

Published by the Advanced Technology Studio of Enclos, Bending Glass in the Parametric Age examines the material properties, technologies and design considerations of curved glass applications.
