I recently learned of the Lamanitti House in the Netherlands that uses only glass as the load bearing structures. Does anyone know from where I might be able to gather more technical information about the Lamanatti House?
glass as the only load bearing structure
Sonia, this sounds rather strange, I know glass can be toughened (the ultimate form being bullet-proof glass) and there is always glass-fibre (mixture of glue and glass), but otherwise glass can only take a compressive load. So the structure must follow the loading forces.
I imagine the hotels made of ice in Finland and Sweden would be similar in their designs?
