The current exhibit at Werkstatt – the showcase and test center in London for Sto’s innovative facade and interior materials – takes glass architecture to the next level and features StoVentec Glass, an external rain screen cladding system, that can also be utilized as interior décor. The innovative and colorful and installation, designed by Space Popular in collaboration with Sto technical experts, encourages the imaginative use of glass in building design. The kaleidoscopic glass construction explores different ranges of scale, playing with visual perceptions of glass doorways as grand arches and small steps as giant pediments.
The design-bid-build process (DBB) is a traditional practice used in the United States, where the owner of the project has separate contracts with a designer and contractors for the construction of a project. Alternatively, the design-build process is where the design and construction services are all managed through a single contractor.
