Glass provides natural light and views, improves energy efficiency, and enhances the aesthetic appearance of a building. In modern architecture, advancements in glass technology have allowed for the creation of various types of glass with different properties, including tempered, laminated, and low-emissivity glass. Glass has become an essential component in the design of many contemporary buildings and is widely used for its functional and aesthetic benefits.
