Extract

Despite the increasing use of glass façades in the past years, both in new construction and in major renovations, there is still a lack of comprehensive design guides and standards and a huge gap with the real-world applications. The presented research aims to identify the major methodological issues to support the development of glass façades design process, through a survey about how façade consult-ants and experts cope with different design aspects. The purpose is to support the architectural designer to consider the different issues, to be aware of the available solutions and of the main elements that need to be evaluated in the choice of a glass façade. The present work intro-duces the aspects of integration, identifies some of the key challenges and unfolds a scenario for a novel approach to environmentally sus-tainable glass systems.
