Channel: Glazing / Insulating Glass
Interpane: top international rating for '7 More London'

London: the place where the Queen lives, where bank towers rise above the city, where theatres and art galleries inspire people from all over the world in a fascinating city of architectural contrasts.

The ten-storey ‘7 More London’ was planned by the architect group Foster & Partners.

At more than 60,000 square metres, the building’s floor space has the size of four football fields. It is convincing in terms of architecture as well as technology due to its innovative...
