Technology & Conservation, MIT Department of Architecture–Building Technology Program, and the Historic Resources Committee of the Boston Society of Architects/AIA are hosting a symposium/training program that will examine “the basic material properties of glass, the role of thermal, mechanical, structural, and chemical properties on
performance and durability, and the effects of environmental conditions on both traditional
buildings and outdoor sculpture and on modern structures and their ornamentation.”  This event will be followed  by a 1-day program focused on stained glass.

“All of the sessions are designed to offer attendees valuable insights into the
performance of glass and glazing in the outdoor environment . . . and the appropriate
selection, specification, use, and maintenance of glass materials for existing and new
buildings and artistic works.”

    This looks really interesting, it’s a pity I’m in Australia at the moment. I’ve always been amazed at how early glass was developed by humans, I would love to hear about how it is made/crafted etc.

    This will be an amazing workshop. I wish I had the time to go over to Massachusetts as I am too packed with my work right now.

    I have always wondering how they build tall buildings with glass.
