Photography and other digital images are increasingly popular choices for incorporating design elements into indoor and outdoor laminated glass features. This course explores vector graphics in detail, examines their use in laminated glass, and describes the new technologies and tools designers can use to create vector designs from a wider array of images and in large-scale applications. Project samples are included.

Learning Objectives

  • Review examples of how and why vector graphics are used in a variety of architectural materials.
  • Explain how vector graphics differ from raster graphics and how they address challenges of resolution and scale.
  • Describe how vector graphics can be used in architectural laminated glass, including the role of new technologies and design tools that expand the creative options for bringing photographs and digital imagery to architectural laminated glass applications.
  • Cite examples of how vector graphics can be used in architectural laminated glass applications to achieve project-specific creative objectives.
