Glass shapes architecture, offering architects scope for playing with the relationship between "inside and outside" and how people relate to space and nature. It influences interior light and warmth, offering special spatial atmospheres and views. Glass needs other materials to hold, carry and support it, so using it requires an integrative approach involving various disciplines.

Good glass architecture is the result of a successful interaction between design, technology, construction and implementation.
Depending on its composition, glass appears transparent or translucent, coloured or clear.
