Last October 4th, the company , dedicated to glass performance, technology and design, organized an event for professionals from the architecture sector to hold a purely technical meeting between architects, construction companies and other professionals interested in the use of glass as a construction material.
It was a formative conference that took place in the "Colegio de Arquitectos" of the Balearic Islands in Mallorca, , and called about 120 attendees. Different presentations were given at the event, with the aim of making known the infinite possibilities of glass performances and their applications adapted to each territory, project and client.
GRAS Reynés Arquitectos had the pleasure of be invited to present three of its projects in which glass was a very important factor in the design development. The presentation was carried out by the architect Mayca Sánchez Carvajal of our team of architects from Mallorca, the three projects exhibited were: , and MRA; the latter, a new work made by our studio GRAS Reynés Arquitectos, which is in the development phase. In each of them, Mayca raised the problems encountered during its construction and how they ended up being solved. The presentation was followed by the architect and Technical and Quality Director of Vidresif, Agustí Bulbena, who gave an explanation on "The choice of glass" and complemented with a greater technical knowledge the talk carried out by our architect.
At the end of the presentation time was given to the questions of the assistants and to create a debate around the glass as material, from which arose the topic of the houses "passivhaus" and how the glass can be a great choice. For those who are interested in the concept we leave a of explanation, but briefly tell you that they are efficient houses in conservation and energy saving.
The event concluded with cocktails and live music performed by the architect Miquel Lacomba, who delighted us with a quartet made up of piano, battery, bass and saxophone.
From our studio, GRAS Reynés Arquitectos, we are deeply grateful for this invitation and we wish you great success in future calls.
