Rethinking Transparency in Modern Architecture: The Opaqueness of Glass

Abstract Submission Deadline : November 30, 2024

Manuscript Submission Deadline : December 25, 2024

Special Issue Description

To control and regulate the amount of light entering a building as well as its distribution, architects are currently investigating the significance, necessity, and emerging methods of letting sunshine into spaces. Obscure materials like screens and tinted glass are preferred for residential buildings where seclusion is important. Surprisingly, transparency in the field of landscape architecture receives a lot less attention than in the one of architecture. While transparency as a theoretical tool is conspicuously absent, transparency as a design aspect is occasionally used in landscape architecture but is frequently overshadowed by other design goals within the discourse on the landscape. Because landscape architectural projects typically incorporate seasonality, climatic changes, and plant materials to convey the more qualitative meanings of transparency like ephemerality and ethereality, this absence is more noticeable. The study first analyzed and consolidated prior architectural thought on transparency was used in the modernist movement as a material state and was transferred to contemporary design. The lack of transparency within the discourse of landscape architecture was first demonstrated, and then it was questioned, using a language that was activated and transmitted to landscape architecture conversation. The thesis developed and illustrated a grasp of the theoretical and practical application of transparency within landscape design through several case studies.
