Summary
Drawing on a number of modern and heritage design projects from Europe, the USA, the Middle East and South East Asia, this book examines the role of 'glass architecture' in the economic and social development of regional towns and local places. The book argues that adopting a more 'global' aesthetic can lead to the destruction of a place's cohesive identity and a discontinuity of heritage with little or no social or economic gain
