Prior to the Glass Performance Days 2015 conference in Tampere, Finland, SOM Technical Partner Keith Boswell will lead two sessions at Glass Innovation Institute’s high-rise workshops in Helsinki on June 23, 2015. After introducing the wide range of high-rise design considerations in the morning, his afternoon session will explore the use of glass materials in high-rise structures in more detail: focusing on, for example, the impact of wind pressure on operable windows.

Later, he will discuss case studies of successful design applications with Peter Smithson, director of BG&E’s facade services in Australia, and Dr. Leon Jacob, director of Jacob & Associates in Australia.
