Paper Title:
Decision Making on Glass Selection in Building Facade
  Abstract

Glass is widely used for its properties of transparency. It has been favoured by architects for the last two decades and used to deliver a distinct style of architecture. However, the conflicting performance requirements make the decision making on glass selection in building envelopes a complex process. This paper investigates the factors affecting the selection of glass used in building facade, and proposes a hierarchy of decision making to facilitate the information flow. This may provide an integrated and robust approach to reach an informed decision.
