The aesthetic result is a totally transparent structure (see Figure 3a). Abstract Provides guidance for the use of structural glass in buildings. Explores design principles and practice and looks at structural glass elements and special applications, the implications of fire protection on design and loading conditions, specification, maintenance and inspection. In spite of the structural shortcoming of glass, its use is unavoidable since they are transparent and aesthetic and can be tailor-made in shape and color to suit various architectural purposes. We can see that most award-winning projects overseas contain heavy glass ingredient. Glass .
