Merck Window Technologies went all the way by presenting their Liquid-Crystal-Window technology in a mock-up of the new Oscar Niemeyer building in Leipzig.
50 different triangles of approx. 1.4 x 1.4m, supported by a steel structure. All windows are individually switchable ranging from fully transparent to completely opaque. Special thanks to Bruce Nicol for a smooth cooperation. #glassengineering
The glass technology live show is a product of a University Network including the Technical Universities of Delft, Dortmund, Dresden and Darmstadt.
