Glass in Architecture: NGA Provides Resources to Architects
To help raise awareness on the uses of glass in architecture, NGA sent a special message to architects last week in lieu of the opportunity to meet face-to-face at the canceled AIA Conference on Architecture that was slated to take place in Los Angeles.

The message pointed architects to a compilation of educational resources on glass—dubbed as the Architect’s Glass Mixtape –to further their knowledge on what types of glass applications and features can be incorporated into their next design project.
