Abstract
In this paper the connection of double-curved double glass elements with a translucent polymer is described together with a first prototype of a double glass structure with translucent connections without any other additional supporting structure. With this technique, it is possible to make translucent shell structures of double glass elements. In this paper we describe the connections and the testing of these connections on tensile stress.
