Since its publication in 1993, 'Glass in Building' has rapidly become the definitive book on this most important modern building material; now the book is re-issued in paperback so that a greater audience can enjoy and gain value from this work.

Glass fulfils a multitude of functions in buildings in addition to its traditional day lighting role. Innovative architectural designs, together with the development of new glass types, continually extend the range of applications of this material.
'Glass in Building' is a comprehensive guide to the nature and performance of glass and its relationship with the building occupant. Prepared by a team of expert contributors from Pilkington Glass Limited, the book explores the visual, thermal,
mechanical and protective functions so that specifiers of glass can fully understand what they can achieve with it. Numerous line diagrams help to explain relevant points of theory, while built examples are illustrated by colour photographs throughout the text. 'Glass in Building' will help architects and design professionals to approach glass specifications with increased understanding and confidence; it will also be a valuable reference for construction professionals, academics, students and anyone wanting to know more about this unique material.
