A recent example of a decorative glass rainscreen installation can be seen at 3001 Orchard Parkway in San Jose, CA, by MODULUS Architects. The rainscreen features approximately 5,000 square feet (over 450 sq. m) of laminated safety glass, held by compression glass fittings. It creates a dynamic, modern look, changing its appearance as daylight travels across the facade. The project demonstrates how a smartly designed, elegant glass rainscreen can completely transform a building exterior on time, on budget, and without disrupting occupants.
