Henke Schreieck - Kufstein university building, Kufstein 2001. A unique double facade of operable full height terrace-like wood doors behind a glazed skin with operable vent panels provides optimal thermal performance while allowing classrooms to feel open to the exterior. Depending on the time of day, the glazing either reflects the surroundings or accentuates the inner timber structure. Photos (C) Margherita Spiluttini

Skene Catling de la Peña - The dairy house, Somerset 2008. The extension to a former dairy uses locally dried timber stacked on laminated sheets of glass. The restructuring of the facade maintains the solidity of the historic building from the exterior while providing luminosity with refracted daylight on the interior. Via, photos (C) James Morris.

Brückner & Brückner - Meeting point at the German-Czech border, Bärnau 2000. A small landmark on the predominantly untouched landscape, the structure resembles a fragment of a former building; the skeleton of a mining support wall so common in the area, the first level of a historic stone house, or the borders of a early farm. Alternating layers of crushed granite concrete and sandwiched laminated glass panels create a common texture, but allow the structure to slowly dissolve as it rises. Natural light passes through the glass, and from within a slight blue tint cast offers a meditative space for people wondering the area. Via, photos (C) André Mühling, Siegfried Wameser.
