Glass: Window to the Future

Building materials have been around since the settlement of humans. They have helped humanity move from a nomadic existence to a sophisticated society. One of the key materials that had a large influence on building design through the ages is glass. Although glass is an old material, it has undergone many technological advances and will continue to be enhanced in the future. Glass has brought us to where we are today and it will continue to move us forward with new and interesting materials that are already being developed.
