Detail Practice Translucent Materials

Frank Kaltenbach

Transparent, translucent, perforated

The modern guide to diaphanous building materials

Translucent materials offer the architect great design scope for a sensitive handling of light and an exciting interplay of indoor and outdoor space that would not be possible with clear glass. Different moods, evoked in the past with stained-glass windows, thinly cut stone slabs or stretched paper, are created in modern forms through the use of special types of glass, plastic sheets, membranes, perforated metal sheeting, etc.
