La Smart City redonne les clés de la ville aux citoyens | Cities and buildings of Tomorrow | Scoop.it
La ville de demain sera plus sobre, plus verte et plus humaine. Une utopie, la  « smart city » ? Non ; aujourd'hui, écoquartiers et bâtiments biomimétiques comme Lyon Confluence ou les tours de l'architecte Vincent Callebaut sortent de terre partout dans le monde. La data, nouveau combustible de la ville intelligente, se situe au cœur de ces ambitieuses réalisations. Comment se co-construisent ces nouvelles cités ? Peuvent-elles faire école ?

Glazing Europe’s Tallest Tower

Glazing Europe’s Tallest Tower | Cities and buildings of Tomorrow | Scoop.it
Glazing Europe’s tallest tower included glazing the façade with two skins, formed of double-glazing units incorporating three different glass components.

Saint-Gobain’s COOL-LITE and PLANITHERM were assembled by Glassolutions’ Eckelt Glas site (Austria) for the building’s façades and to provide its occupants with maximum year-round comfort. The SGG COOL-LITE® SKN 076 II glass combines solar control, high light transmission with a neutral appearance.

The solar control, heat reflective glass, SGG COOL-LITE ST Bright Silver offers extreme transparency and an aesthetic, neutral reflection.

The low-e PLANITHERM ONE II glass panes on SGG DIAMANT deliver the market’s best energy-efficiency performance, allowing maximum light penetration and keeping the interiors warm.

Lakhta Center has made a conscious effort to embrace a number of innovative energy-saving technologies in its design, significant among which is the glazing solution from Saint-Gobain.
