The design of structural glass is often governed by its connections. The paper will focus on a number of non-conventional structural glass connections designed and implemented by our company in different projects in Europe (UK, Spain) and abroad (Dubai).
For each connection, the paper will include a discussion on the problem to be solved, design alternatives, and the final connection installed on site. Drawings and 3D models of the connections will be shown together with an outline of the structural calcs and pictures of the components on site.
The aim of the paper is to promote the exchange of practical design ideas between participants, so that we can all learn from others.
