SmartGlass @ CERN HQ

Post Time:Feb 13,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:155

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research. At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter — the fundamental particles.

The Globe of Science and Innovation

Designed by Geneva architects T. Büchi and H. Dessimoz, the Globe is as much a homage to the Earth as demonstration of human ingenuity and is undeniably becoming the landmark for CERN. The role of this new spherical building is to serve as a source of pride for the scientific community by sharing the important work done at CERN.

Housing a permanent exhibition and intended as a venue for a wide range of activities, conferences and other one-off events, the Globe of Science and Innovation is well on the way to becoming a major symbol of cutting-edge scientific research in the Geneva region.

SmartGlass International has recently completed an exciting feature within the dome using SPD SmartGlass.
SPD-SmartGlass can be manually or automatically “tuned” to precisely control the amount of light, glare and heat passing through a window.
