Why Dynamic Glass?

Solving a glaring problem

View Dynamic Glass is clear when you want it and tints when you need it...automatically

The sun is dynamic…your windows should be too. View Dynamic Glass tints electronically in response to the outside world, preserving your view and keeping you cool. Now your windows are intelligent and no longer just a static component in a building. View Dynamic Glass transitions seamlessly between four variable tint states, allowing visible light to shine in, and rejecting unwanted heat and glare…any time of the day or year. No need to give up your views to save energy or stay comfortable. How cool is that?

“This glass is like a new skin for the building. This skin is alive and can change the view and the surface and the image of the building from outside...and for the comfort of the people inside.”
–Dominique Perrault

Welcome to the era of no compromises

Advances in architectural glass have been a story of compromises. How to get more visible light and reduce the bad stuff; heat, UV and glare. Incremental improvements were made, but they always came with big tradeoffs. Since the glass was static, it was unable to adapt to the changes going on outside the window. None of these advances did much to handle the comfort issues of glare. Block it with blinds and shades…and with it the view. Until now.

Glass gets intelligent

View Dynamic Glass is a major step forward in glass performance. Since the glass is intelligent and can change, it can dynamically adjust to the outside world, to provide optimum natural light and comfort, no matter what the conditions or time of year. And it has the intelligence to predict what will be best for you, or respond to your individual preferences. Views without heat and glare…less energy. No more compromises.

“The history of architectural material...has been the endless struggle for light...in other words, the history of windows.”
—Le Corbusier
