Discussing Building-Integrated Photovoltaic Glass with Vitro's Emily Losego | cA Weekly 03/21

In recent years, photovoltaic glass has emerged as a next-generation sustainability solution for commercial buildings. Building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) glass modules not only generate clean energy but also seamlessly integrate into the building structure—and even can be used with low-e coated glass products. These capabilities mean BIPV modules unveil new possibilities for designers, combining aesthetics, CO2-free power generation and protection from the elements, all while reducing air conditioning costs and replacing cladding materials. In this episode of the commARCH Weekly Podcast Series, Emily Losego, MSVD Product Manager at Vitro Architectural Glass, discusses the design and sustainability possibilities of BIPV glass modules and other innovative glass solutions.

New Live/Work Spaces

As we continue to settle into the “new normal” of a combination live/work lifestyle as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the various benefits and the looming possibility of another health crisis have caused designers to look to the future of our spaces.

We spoke with Katz Architecture founder David Katz about this concept.
