Unique to this edition, the featured projects range from the McDonald’s pavilion situated in the centre of Rotterdam, where the architect utilised glass to blend the inside and outside of the building, to a viewing platform at ‘Le Pas dans le Vide’ in the French Alps.

The platform comprises a glass box which uses frameless glazing to ensure unobstructed views of the landscape. 

The second edition of Glass in Architecture also features a number of public spaces in which glass has been used to help enhance the building’s aesthetics and sustainable performance, including the Stonehenge Visitor Centre and the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Poland.
