Changing trends in building Façade

For architects, facades play a vital role from a design and structural point of view. Facades are usually known to set the tone for the complete glass infrastructure. Architecturally the most important aspect of a building, facades have transformed, altered and evolved into an expression of contemporary design and reflect the brilliance and concept of the architect themselves. Also, if considered from an engineering facet, facades play a very important role in altering the constitution and sustainability of a building.
History of Facades:
Evolving from the Neo-Greek and Egyptian architecture to the Georgian buildings, facades have evolved from the simple and majestic Great Pyramids of Egypt to the elegant and royal Buckingham Palace in London, to the massive glass skyscrapers we see now.  Contemporary facades are even more diverse and add to the sustainability of the building, not just its artistic value.
The changing trends in glass facades reflect a contemporary amalgamation of the traditional and non-traditional ideas. The modern facades extend far beyond the mere use of glass and composite panels for the spandrel area.
Indoor to outdoor boundaries can be diminished by using a more open façade that merges seamlessly with the interior of the building, giving it a more contemporary look. Architects can provide clients/customers with better lighting solutions, heating solutions and add vibrancy to the building by using a combination of tempered glass glazing and other laminates.
Depending on the degree of glazing, glass can conserve energy and reduce the need for artificial lighting. It will also retain heat in the cold season, hence keeping the rooms warm during winters. During summers, the glazing also prevents excessive heating and keeps the glare and harmful rays out. This gives the room a more open and enriched look and will increase the architectural evaluation of any building. The glazing solutions will enhance the façade of any structure and make it ecologically enhanced.
