DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
View Dynamic Glass

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Window Glass

INSPIRATION:
The concept of dynamic glass is not new, but View disrupted the market because of the person-power, manufacturing and logistics management in place to make smart windows mainstream. The idea behind View Dynamic Glass is to create entirely new possibilities to elevate occupant experience and change the way people think about architectural design. About 25 billion square feet of glass are used for architectural purposes each year, yet windows are commonly regarded as one of the least energy efficient building components, responsible for up to 40 percent of total heating, cooling and lighting consumption. View seeks to fix this problem while advancing sustainable design and creating significant energy saving solutions for organizations throughout North America. Additionally, View Dynamic Glass offers several improvements for people. Natural lighting conditions can change the mood of building occupants, whether employees or potential customers. Research shows more natural light gives organizations a 6-15 percent increase in productivity. Workers in offices with poor light quality and views use significantly more sick leave hours. And daylighting of a congenitally windowless retail space can have a positive effect on sales. The implications of such findings are vast when considering costs related to efficiency, healthcare, sales and more.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
View is the pioneer in large-scale architectural dynamic glass, a new generation of glass that intelligently changes tint levels in response to external and internal conditions, providing enhanced occupant comfort, control, and energy efficiency. View’s glass changes tint over the course of a day based upon latitude, longitude, sun angle, cloud cover, and where people sit.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
View Dynamic Glass can be likened to transition sunglasses for buildings. The product tints electronically to control the sun’s energy, seamlessly transitioning through four variable tints to provide continuous unobstructed views without heat or glare. Occupants can also manually control the tint level using View apps on mobile devices or by wall switches. This vastly improves the occupant experience by eliminating the need for blinds or shades and allowing occupants to enjoy unobstructed views.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
not applicable

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
A smart window is a dual-pane electrochromic window with two transparent conducting oxide films sandwiching an ion storage layer, an electrolyte and an electrochromic layer. When a low voltage is applied, the conductive oxide pushes the ions out of the storage layer and through the electrolyte to meet the electrochromic layer. This prompts the electrochromic material, containing tungsten oxide, to absorb or block light. This causes the window to darken. Reversing the voltage to the conductive oxide sends the ions back to its storage layer, causing the window to let in more light.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
View Dynamic glass can be manufactured at 5x10ft per pane – the largest size in the industry.
