Victoria University – Printed Glass Façade

Digitally printed glass facadeThe printed design portray a design concept of human movement and bio mechanics with abstract images of a man running. Functionally the printed glass allows for light transmission while controlling thermal performance. The architect opted for digital ceramic glass printing for its short lead time, print consistency, and freedom of design where they could alter the design without the considerations of traditional screens.

The façade features 348 printed panels comprising a total area of 1600m², and utilises 24mm G.James TwinGlaze Ultra ETherm 60 glass.

ARCHITECT: John Wardle Architects
