Lunch Talks@CAF: Glass

Previous Next

The technological improvements in glass over the last 20 years have had a dramatic effect on architectural design and engineering. Glass is among the most chameleon of materials because of its breakable/structural/ transparent/opaque properties. Mark Sexton discusses his firm's experience with projects as diverse as the Crown Fountain in Millennium Park to a new high security GSA building in South Florida. A PDF of Mark's presentation is accessible below.

This program is part of Lunch Talks @ CAF, a weekly lecture series that takes place every Wednesday at 12:15pm at the Chicago Architecture Foundation.
Recorded Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at the Chicago Architecture Foundation.
