Review: glass technology live 2014


For some years now, "glass technology live" has established itself as one of the top attractions of the world’s leading trade fair glasstec. The special show with the international specialist symposium is considered to be the driving force of the industry, where in 2014 products and visions from research and practice on the subject of glass will be presented. "Intelligent Glass" is the motto under which innovative developments will be shown demonstrating the future-orientated potential of this transparent material.

The trade fair area in Hall 11 encompasses all relevant fi elds of expertise for the use of glass on buildings. Through the example of large-sized façade mockups and one-to-one models, new technologies for production, innovations from the fi eld of functional glass, as well as glass as the end product itself will be shown.

A highlight of the special show is the applications of thin glass technologies, the handling of large formats and highly-complex geometries as well as resourceefficient products. This diversifi ed range is rounded off by the latest research and developments in the glass sector as well as glass design and aesthetics.

This special show is designed and conceived by the university of stuttgart, Chair 2 of the Institute for Building Construction, headed by professor Behling.

New standards in application and development
New applications, which at the same time bring challenges to material development and processing, were the key topic of the special show. “glass technology live” presented the latest touchable developments and solutions.

Innovations from construction to design
The presentation in Hall 11 included pioneering facade constructions, which were shown using the example of facade mock-ups or large-size models and the latest solar products and BIPV applications.

The focus here was also on innovative glass products such as bent glass and the latest glass products for interiors and interior accessories. The varied range was rounded off with the latest impetus from research and development as well as glass design and aesthetics.

The special show was created and designed once again by Professor Stefan Behling and his team at the Institute for Building Construction at the University of Stuttgart.
