...can be unique in this unitized curtain wall system. By holding the edges square but slumping the glass the process is registered in the unique forms of each insulated glass unit against the regularity of the mullions.
The curtain wall units act as a slim version of a double curtain wall system, creating a stack effect. The outer lite of glass is monolithic and heats the space in front of the insulated glass unit. The heated air rises and causes a passive flow of air through the interstitial space.
A typical double-curtain wall system is wide enough to walk between the inner and outer glass for maintenance. To allow for access in this slimmed-down version, each insulated unit is actually a door which opens to the interior.
The slab edge is minimized allowing for a clean reading of floor-to-ceiling glass on the assumed concrete structure.
