Steel and glass in India
Glass has a great future in India.m Lets cite some examples, e.g the LIC building in Delhi having a glass facade or the DLF building in Gurgaon designed completely with glazed facades. As far as the proper planning and proper ventilation and services are installed glasses can prove a effective material to pave the way for a new generation of modern buildings.

hi arnab,
thanx for the reply but as u mentioned about the LIC building in N.Del well i am not very sure about the ventilation part of it , thou asthetically it looks gr8 . actually in the west due to the climatic cond. and the high rise features it falls in plac , but wat abt it in India as here in some places like Del itself were the climate is hot and dry , rathere to the extremes in both the conditions how does it fll in place.
actually wat i am talking about is the skin and bone construction and not cladding well if u could give me some justifications to my query.
