Hollow glass blocks are used in building for more than century. Originally, they were used in industrial buildings but soon new applications quickly followed. They gained popularity in modern architecture of 1920 – 1930 and again in 1960s. The hollow glass blocks were always combined with reinforced concrete leading to traditional installation method. Ever growing popularity leads to demand of new, easier and faster installation methods. The performance of these new systems needs to be verified to develop reliable design models and application rules.
