Paper Title:
A Brief Discussion and Analysis on Methods of High Performance Architecture Facades Design
  Abstract

Glass is remarkable material and its functionality is significantly enhanced when it is processed or altered to provide added intrinsic capabilities. The overall performance of glass elements in a building can be further enhanced when they are designed to be part of a complete façade system. Finally, the façade system delivers greater performance to both the owner and the occupants of the building. A limited number of facade technologies or combinations of technologies can be evaluated in a field test program, for the reason of both resource constraint and the practical use. The specific method can be used to determine what technologies are to be selected for the research. It based on technical and market objectives, surveys of commercially-available technologies, manufacturers, architects and engineers, utilities, and other stakeholders.
