The Italian response to the necessity of sustainable residential building development is Bosco Verticale located in Milan. Vertical woodland consists of 800 trees, 4 000 shrubs, and 15 000 other plants set on the terraces. With LEED Gold certification in mind, Vertical Forest converts annually approximately 20 tons of CO2 into pure oxygen!

The Egyptian Museum in Turin houses the second biggest collection of Egyptian antiquities in the world, after the museum in Cairo. The anti-reflective extra clear glass Pilkington OptiView™ Protect OW has been chosen to protect ancient discoveries. 70 cabinets and 103 display glass cases were designed by architects of Isolarchitetti. It’s a real paradise for archeologists and ancient Egyptian civilization enthusiasts. Emotikon smile

Contrasting elevations, simple forms and eye-catching colors combinations are key features of the new building of Food Technology and Food Service Institute in Łomża, Poland. Dark aluminum facade on the street side contrasts with the glazed courtyards made of green and yellow laminated glass Pilkington Optilam™ I and decorative non-transparent yellow, green and light grey enamelled spandrel glass, that perfectly fit with the surrounding greenery.

‪#‎amazingglasshotels‬ When writing about amazing hotels, we cannot overlook the largest ice hotel in the world located in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden, around 200 km above the Arctic Circle. The hotel is open from December to mid-April when it melts. That’s why every year it is rebuilt and redesigned by artists and architects invited for this purpose from all around the world. Do you have the same impression that the material used in the hotel is confusingly similar to the glass? ;)
Sweden's famous Ice Hotel is offering guests the chance to design their own bespoke suites for winter 2014.
