Lecture | Glass Performance Days

Isaac Safdie delivers the keynote lecture at GPD South America 2022

As the Resident Architect on the Albert Einstein Education and Research Center (AEERC), Isaac Safdie speaks to overseeing the construction of the project, particularly its innovative glass skylight.

The Glass Performance Days (GPD), hosted by Glass South America, is a forum dedicated to the development of the global glass industry through education. With conferences in Finland, China, and Brazil, GPD also organizes workshops and a glass exhibition. It sets the ideal stage to introduce the sophisticated, multi-layered skylight system implemented in the recently-opened AEERC. 

The atrium’s vaulted glass roof structure features an innovative shading and daylighting system with a resulting visual effect that evokes the feeling of congregating under a leafy tree.
