Glass | Façade | Energy – These are the main topics for the 4th scientific conference »engineered transparency« on 20th and 21st September 2016 in Düsseldorf/Germany, where international experts in research and building industry meet. In parallel with the world’s largest trade fair for glass production, progressing and products “glasstec 2016” worldwide known designers and planners as well as famous researchers from 20 universities give more than 70 lectures on latest trends in constructive glazing and modern façades as high-performance building components. The conference will be opened by Werner Sobek (Werner Sobek Group, Stuttgart), Tom Minderhoud (UNStudio, Amsterdam), Juan Lucas Young (Sauerbruch Hutton, Berlin) and Johan Sischka (Waagner-Biro, Wien).
For the first time two special symposia will take place this year: ‘embedded functions‘ in cooperation with ‘Hüttentechnische Vereinigung der Glasindustrie‘ (HVG) and ‘Deutsche Glastechnische Gesellschaft‘ (DGG) as well as ’glass technologies’ which is arranged in partnership with ‘Fachverband Konstruktiver Glasbau’ (FKG) and ‘Bundesverband Flachglas’ (BF).
As hosts both the Technische Universität Dresden and the Technische Universität Darmstadt focus on constructive issues as well as on energy efficiency, sustainability and resource conservation. The conference addresses equally engineers and architects as well as glass manufacturers, glass processors and building owners.
