"The history of glassmaking can be traced back to 3500 BC in the Mesopotamia and it is the Romans who first used glass in architecture. With the development of technology, glass has become a common material in contemporary architecture. There are glass ceramics, polished wire glass, groove glass, glass tiles etc. With diversified surface treatments, such as enameling, acid embossing, sandblasting and screen printing, there seems to be endless choices for architectural design. This book introduces various glass types individually and uses photos, detailed drawings and well-organised text to analyse and showcase the application of glass and structural details. With systematic content and a great source of information, this book can serve as a great reference for readers."
