Roasted from the Sun: Walkie-Talkie

The “Walkie-Talkie Building” in London in 2013 made a lot of speech. But these conversations were a bit negative… Facade design, reflectivity of the selected glasses and the incident caused by the height; glare!

The reflectivity value of the glasses and the high temperature formed on the surfaces when the solar radiation gathered at a certain point in terms of form, sometimes damaged the plastic of a car, sometimes caused the materials in the shop window to deteriorate. It is no longer a luxury but a need to measure the risk of such situations occurring using computational methods in design.

You can access the video links containing the news related to the subject below. We also wish the convenience of the friends who had problems in the mirror of his car and the city residents who used this street especially during the reflection.
