There are two things everybody knows about glass: it is transparent... and it breaks! Those properties constitute the challenge of glass. Transparency is just the beginning. Playing with light, reflections, images and shadows poses endless possibilities in architectural design. Breaking, on the other hand, is the end...or is it? Brittleness calls for sophisticated structural designs to ensure safety. Using glass is accepting the challenge.

Challenging Glass is a two-day conference which aims at gathering world class designers, engineers and researchers on the architectural and structural use of glass. A specific goal is to get PhD researchers from around Europe and the world in contact with each other and practice.
