The conference »Engineered Transparency« was founded in 2007 at the Columbia University in the City of New York and since 2010 accompanies the »glasstec« in Düsseldorf – the world’s leading trade fair of the glass industry. The unique liaison of research, novel developments and built examples always meets the demands of a broad expert audience that brings together the worlds of glass, architecture and engineering.
The conference covers various subjects ranging from conceptual design, to planning and realization as well as to relevant research topics in glass, structures and facade constructions. Additionally, the mini-symposium »standardization and design« focuses on current standardization activities, for example the new draft of the design standard Eurocode (CEN-TS Structural Glass) and their appropriate application in the design of glass. The second mini-symposium »thin glass« discusses novel ideas to integrate thin glass in the fields of glass in architecture, engineering and related applications. Both mini-symposia were initiated and organized in cooperation of Technische Universität Darmstadt and Technische Universität Dresden.
