From October 21-24 2014, the world’s largest trade fair for the glass industry, Glasstec, took place in Düsseldorf, Germany. With 1,175 exhibitors from 54 countries presenting to an audience of 42,000, this event was a fantastic opportunity for the EFN Mobile team of students and professors from the University of Bath, Lucerne, IFDC Detmold, Ostwestfalen-Lippe University and TU Delft to network with some of the most innovative minds among the glass industry.
Since the start of the Pillars of Sustainable Education program, the EFN Mobile team has successfully completed three topical workshops: Design vs. Development, Low-Cost Low Energy Climate Responsive Facades, andThinking Skin. These workshops resulted in the creation of façade prototypes that were displayed at the EFN Mobile booth at this years Glasstec. The three day conference provided students with a platform to speak about their hard research and design exploration over the past year.
