SOM Technical Partner Keith Boswell will deliver a presentation at Glass Performance Days (GPD) Cuba, taking place in Havana on Tuesday, December 6th. GPD is an independent forum dedicated to the development of the global glass industry through education. This year, it is held in conjunction with CUBA GLASS 2016, the first international glass industry event designed to attract interest and investment in Cuba and the Caribbean region.
Boswell's presentation, titled "Architectural Glass in Emerging Economies," will explore how to balance the maintenance of local indigenous architectural character and sense of place with the need to provide new contemporary construction. This is a challenge facing many emerging economies around the world. Delivering new buildings that are harmonious with legacy buildings requires design sensitivity. Boswell will share examples of projects that utilize architectural glass to produce modern, classic, timeless design.
