Glass is a classic and versatile material that can be used for everything from auto glass to residential glass to commercial glass.
Google “Google” and you’ll see that the big news this week for the computing giant has been its plan to “explode the concept of buildings [and] workspace,” as the Silicon Valley Business Journal put it. The “explosion” is the design and concept of its proposed campus in Mountain View which will be “unlike anything ever built before it.” The most obvious innovations are glass “canopies” that, from above, appear somewhat like greenhouses and form a kind of membrane. (See theverge.com for additional pictures.)
“In stunning, vividly colorful aerial renderings, their buildings appear as faceted, transparent hemispheres, glowing in the night; on closer approach, the clear skin is tent-like, a glass and fabric membrane stretching from towering poles,” the SVBJ says.
