Transparency is the physical property of a body that lets itself be crossed by light, returning the complexity of the space that surrounds it and revealing its content. The idea of transparent materiality associated with architecture comes to the scene in the second half of the 19th century with the realization of the Crystal Palace on the first Great Exhibition that took place in London in 1851. From that moment on the use of glass surfaces became more recurrent. Today the transparency still allows to create refuges without walls, a glass architecture.
Glass is a material that reveals, connects, and is characterized by fragility and transparency. In the architecture of a town has an effect that is the same time is both reflecting and mirroring. Transparencies in cities allow us to create a contact with other people by passing through their eyes that tie together ours through a gaze. As the places that we live in we should transform our bodies in glass too allowing us to touch the intimal sphere of other people.
