Optichroic® Dichroic Glass

Bendheim’s Optichroic® dichroic glass is said to be the first glass of its type suitable for architectural applications. Developed in the late 50s by NASA to protect against the potentially harmful effects of direct sunlight and cosmic radiation, dichroic glass, with its striking visual qualities, has been used in a variety of scientific and industrial applications. Optichroic glass is created through specialized interlayer technologies. As the viewer’s angle to the glass changes, so does its color, giving Optichroic its refined iridescent characteristics. The glass offers an attractive aesthetic with the added durability of a scratch-resistant, easy-to-maintain glass. It has been rigorously tested by independent labs to ensure the... More

Project • By Gustafson Guthrie Nichol LtdCultural Centres

National Museum of African American History

The landscape design for the National Museum of African American History and Culture situates the NMAAHC within the context of the Washington Monument Grounds as an object in a field, drawing the open, pastoral nature of the Washington Monument grounds through the Museum site. The design establishes the site as integral to the story of the museum with spaces that embody both a metaphorical and physical narrative. The experience of the site begins the narrative procession of the museum, with symbolic crossings over water through a landscape that is both continuous and sequential, layered around and through architectural spaces with the presence of water as a constant and dynamic companion throughout the journey.

Laminated safety glass ISO module

This product is a photovoltaic panel made of at least three layers of glass with cell encapsulation and an insulating layer in between the VSG and the third glass pane. These insulating glass modules can be used in many different applications all around buildings and other uses. Especially ceilings and facades can be activated and generate energy. Through the thickness of each glass of 2 until 12 mm these PV modules can be used all around in building skins. The possibility of special and customized shapes, large size modules until a size of 2,440 x 5,100 mm and the possibility of selectable light transparency are unique at ertex solar. So every project has an individual design and generates power in every use. Also because the ertex solar V... More
