STUDIES OF GLASS: LIGHT IN TRANSMISSION, REFLECTION, & REFRACTION
Virginia Tech School of Architecture + Design
ARCH 2044: Building Materials
Fall 2013 to 2016
This team project asked the students to experiment with glass sheets under different light conditions to understand the physical attributes of the material.
Through photographs, the students studied and documented how the glass takes information from the space or objects around it, and re-presents it, and experiment under different light conditions (daylight, electric light, light source positioned differently relative to glass sheets). Glass samples, including colored, laminated, diffused, acid etched, patterened, were provided by James Carpenter Design Associates for educational purposes.
