Light, transparency

Of all construction materials only glass can offer protection from external assault while at the same time maintaining contact with the outside world.

The key functions of clear glass are to let plenty of natural light into buildings, to provide a view of the outside world, and to combine transparency with aesthetics.

As the foundation of an entire industry, glass can be processed and transformed in ways that endow it with a multitude of additional functions described in this part of the site.
