Selfie Inspired Architecture Is Worth Its Weight In Future PR

Who has the best selfies of all your friends? What is the most preferred selfie location for a superb background; Machu Picchu, Disneyland, or with your favorite celebrity or Presidential Primary Candidate? Well, what if as a local location it were the building you designed, the business you owned, or the product you produced? Hmmm, you are now thinking; “yes, that would be great for marketing, advertising, and PR.” Sure it would, so let’s discuss this a little deeper shall we?

Not long ago I made a trip to the Getty Museum and I was enamored at the exhibits and architecture. I was equally intrigued at how the people, mainly tourists, interacted with it in an almost intimate way. Yes, I am referring to their need to get a selfie in front of many of the statues and in front of the main sign and one with the view in the background, etc. all to perhaps post to their Facebook Page for bragging rights (self-validation). It was so fun to people watch, observe people doing this almost Mandatory Ritual. I realized that the world today has drastically changed from just a decade hence.

There was an interesting article titled; “The future of Southern California architecture: Is it selfie-ready?” by Leo Duran at Take Two Media posted on April 23, 2016. The piece stated;

“Los Angeles is one of the most picturesque cities in the world, with stunning beach views and iconic landmarks like the Hollywood sign. But nowadays, there’s another way to measure how beautiful a new building or vista is – how does it look on Instagram? A new sculpture in Grand Park, for example, features breathtaking bronze angel wings that Curbed LA described as “selfie-ready” and it turns out, social media is having a real effect on the way architects and artists think about their craft as they design the next Broad Museum or Getty Center.”

Okay so, apparently I, the lowly observer of humans in their natural habitat, am not the only one who is thinking here. So how can you as a small businessperson, designer, marketing or advertising expert cash in on this obvious positive PR potential? Everyone who is trying to promote anything should be thinking here; non-profits, businesses, government agencies, college campuses, landmarks, parks, buildings, amusement parks, tourist attractions, automobiles, sports teams, churches, you name it, think on it early and often and reap the rewards for your marketing prowess.

Discover and Integrate Your Business Mission Statement With Your Interior Design Presentation

Here are a few keys that will be extremely vital to the success of your office, especially in regards to your interior design.

Number One: Proper Discovery This aspect is totally essential to making sure that things turn out as they should. A big part of this process is asking the right questions, in order to get the right answers that contribute to getting the right results. Think of this as if you were Sherlock Holmes.

Proper discovery also answers questions such as:

  1. Where am I right now and what current conditions do I need to deal with?
  2. Where do I want to go and what do I want to project to my clients and customers in terms of my visual interior design presentation?
  3. What kind of ambiance and feeling of the space do I want projected as well as perceived by my clients and customers?
  4. What kind of aesthetic and functional aspects do I need to incorporate in order to reinforce and support my staff and employees?

Number Two: The Mission Statement You want to take the information that’s been extracted from talking about your dreams and what you want (all the things that came from the discovery process), and put them in a paragraph or two that talks about what it is you want to accomplish. We’re talking about the look, the ambience, the feel, and the emotions that you want portrayed in your environment as well as to your clients and customers.This step is in addition to the functional aspects of a project, but it helps to hone the essence of the final end-result. You want to really refine this in a very descriptive way so that you have a yardstick, level, and plumb-bob, so to speak. It allows you to measure everything that happens from here on out to the end of the design process. So, it is very important that we get this mission statement right. It eliminates the “fluff” and a lot of things that you really don’t need to take up your time, money, or energy.

Number Three: Budget! This is definitely your “vested interest,” because you surely have a vested interest in the amount of money you want to invest in your project, office, or building. The idea is we don’t want to just merely spend your money. We want to invest it with a view toward the maximum return on your investment! And that return can happen in a lot of different ways!

Warning: You must be realistic here! Do not expect a Rolls Royce for the price of a Buick. If you are a “Rolls Royce” business in terms of quality of service and products, then by all means have a “Rolls Royce” quality presentation to your interior design.

You don’t have to do everything all at once. You can space out your investment over a 5 year, 10 year, 15 year, or 20 year span. You can pick any time span you want. This is where a master plan comes into play. It is absolutely necessary for the proper utilization of your resources.

Obviously, some things you will have to do all at once, such as certain construction phases. But, there are some things that can be postponed and added after the fact without causing a lot of disturbance, as long as these things are preplanned and accommodations have been made for them. So, in essence, you are designing incremental additions or advances into your master planning.

Master planning is the exciting part, because once you have a plan and a vision for where you want to go, you will find the money to make it happen. It’s not a prerequisite to have that money in hand right now.

Number Four: Integration The architecture and the interiors function as a hand-and-glove scenario. The interior, which includes all the backgrounds, furniture, furnishings, artwork, etc., functions as a stage setting, so to speak, for the individuals that will inhabit the space. It’s important that these elements put those individuals that are working in your business environment in the very best light. They need to be the gems highlighted against the backdrop of your business. Remember, people are one of your biggest investments. The whole environment should reinforce, support, and enhance everyone working for the company.

Business Office Ambiance and the “Silent Salesperson” – How to Capitalize On It All

One of the most important concepts in the design of offices or financial institutions is everything that goes into it. This includes the materials, furniture, details, artwork, etc., and are all operating individually as well as in concert as “silent salespeople” for your particular office. The majority of business people do not understand the importance of this aspect of their business and its’ visual presentation and perception.

Number One: Ambiance This aspect is all about the feeling and the emotions that are projected to your clients or customers. A lot of this comes out in the “discovery phase” of the project. I’ll ask you all the right questions that will cause you and your business to think more deeply about cause and effect relative to your working environment. This process promotes a feeling of success no matter what level you are at in your particular genre or within the company itself.

My personal definition of ambiance is as follows:

“It is the intangible element of an interior that touches the heart, the soul, the mind, and the emotions; that is visually appealing, intellectually stimulating, emotionally satisfying, and totally enriching for the occupants and others.”

Number Two: The Silent Salesperson This aspect is a real supercharger! If this is done right, and applied correctly, the money that is invested in all the various elements of an interior design project is put to work or “employed” to do double-duty in the form of multiple “salespeople” by “selling” the clients and customers on doing business, or continuing to do business, with you through tapping into as many of the five senses as possible.

The “silent salesperson” concept is about orchestrating all of the different elements that make up good interior design by coming together in a “musical” way to “sell” or “romance” the client. Some of those people are potential clients or customers… those that become “sold” on doing business with you and your company. Others are current clients who purposefully continue doing business transactions with you. You are also “courting” the client or customer through a masterful manipulation of all the various elements that make up a fantastic interior design presentation. It’s one of your “gifts” to them, thereby making them feel special and appreciated.

This “silent salesperson” goes to work from the minute they pull into your parking lot, to opening the front door, to entering the building and viewing your reception area. Your “silent salesperson” should be talking to and communicating with your client or customer even while he or she is waiting for you to greet them before an assistant brings them to your office.

Whether you know it or not, each of the elements in your interior design are making an impression on your client or customer every time they enter your place of business. The impression can be good or not so good, depending on what is being “communicated.”

There’s a great quote that goes something like this, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” How true!

Number Three: The Rich Environment This element is extremely important when dealing with financial institutions and the clients of high net-worth that utilize your services. This ties in with Ambiance and “The Silent Salesperson.” But, in all truthfulness, this element of richness can apply to any type of interior design.

Almost anybody would prefer a rich environment over any other type of environment. Richness can apply to any interior design, from very casual to very elegant. This is brought about by the masterful orchestration of textures. That is why “richness” can apply to any interior design, all across the whole spectrum of styles. So you can have anything from rustic or casual richness to elegant richness.

Summary: It’s not just what we see with our eyes looking outward, but what others see when they look at us in our environmental context. What are their perceptions? What do you want their perceptions to be? This is probably one of the most overlooked and undiscovered aspects of interior design with respect to architecture and the holistic environmental context. But once these elements are employed by skillful hands and minds that are very in tune and sensitive to interior design and what it can really do, and provide, it becomes a force to be reckoned with. This is how you distinguish yourself from your competition. In this way, you can get a standing ovation from your clients and customers multiple times over!

Five Things That Prove Architecting Is an Art

Every individual you meet is an artist in some or the other way. Just because someone has a canvas placed in front of him and a few colors or brushes in his hands, does not mean that he is the only artist in the world. All the people walking on the streets are artists. The only difference is that every person has a different field of art. While some individuals are good in writing, there are others, who are good in cooking. While some individuals are good in talking, there are others, who are good in playing instruments.

Similarly, architecting is also an art. Wondering why? Here is a list of the top five things that would prove the same:

1) Architecting is not everyone’s cup of tea: If you ask me to paint, I won’t be able to do that. If you ask a painter to write, he might not write as good as a popular novelist. Similarly, if you ask a random person to design a building, he won’t be able to do that. This is because architecting is no child’s play; the professionals in this field are well-educated and talented.

2) An architect creates masterpieces: Just like a painter creates masterpieces, so does an architect. He has his own designs in his mind; he has his own equipment, his own thoughts that he puts on blank sheets of papers. When he does that, there is absolutely nothing in his mind, except for the constructions.

3) He designs, paints and constructs: He is someone, who knows how to design, fill the blank sketch with colors or paints and then supervise the construction as well. I agree that not all the professionals stand at the time of the construction, but most of them do. It depends upon what kind of an architect you hire for your task.

4) Just like any other artist, he is the creator of an architecture: When a painter paints, he creates something that has never been created like him before. Similarly, when a professional architect creates something, he stands at a distance and quietly stares at the created masterpiece. It takes a huge amount of experience, talent and skill to enter into this field and watch your sketch being created into a masterpiece.

5) Nobody can do the job as good as him: Unless you are learned in this field, you can’t do the job like a professional person. No matter how hard you try to sketch a particular construction, you can’t do it because that’s not your job; it’s his!

Nine Things an Architect Does

And you thought designing is the only thing that an architect does for his clients?

Not really!

If you meet an architect, you understand the meaning of being busy. He is the busiest professional you would ever meet in your life – why? Because he knows what kinds of responsibilities he has on his shoulders. When you have an architect by your side, the construction is bound to happen perfectly. No matter what kinds of problems come on the site, he is all set and ready with solutions.

But what does an architect does? He does a lot of things, out of which the top nine are mentioned below:

1) He designs: No matter what kind of an architect you contact, he is surely into designing. All the professionals are into developing new designs for different constructions. They have a wide knowledge about different things; even the freshly graduate architects know how to give their best shot in designing different constructions.

2) He creates: An architect knows how to create a specific construction for you. After all, that’s exactly what his job is all about. But not all the architects can create; most of them only support in construction activities, but there are a handful of architects that are completely into constructions as well.

3) He helps in construction: All the architects need to stand on their construction sites to know how the work is going on. Unless the work is properly conducted, their design does not shape the way they want to.

4) He supervises: An architect stands on the construction field to supervise all the activities. He has to supervise each and every activity to transform his design into a live-mansion.

5) He advises: Most of the architects are contacted for their advices. The moment a particular professional turns into an experienced one, he is known for the kind of advices he can provide his clients with.

6) He motivates: Thanks to all those powerful and successful architects in the world, a lot of new people join this field with all their hearts. Their stories and designs motivate people to join and prosper in the arena of architecture.

7) He handles the clients: An architect is known for the kind of polite language he has; he has to handle a lot of people and hence has got to be gentle in talking.

8) He respects his work: Architects love their work; they might not love their company, but they surely love their job!

9) He creates histories: An architect is the only person, who creates histories of his own. Since he constructs different mansions and buildings, his name is known forever.

6 Factors That Matter in Real Estate Investment

Some Facts About Interior Designers You Think Are True

If you want to have a beautiful, more functional office or workspace, you would most probably get the services of a reliable interior designer. Others may say that this is just a waste of money. In reality, doing so can actually help increase the productivity of your business.

Myths About Interior Designers

Interior designers and interior architects are the same – Plenty of people think that these professionals are the same. Indeed, this is a very common mistake. The reality is these 2 professions involve different things which are very far apart. Interior designer has more to do with the art of building whereas interior architecture deals with the science behind it.

It is all about decorations – During all the stages of the construction process, they need to be there. They need to look into everything affecting human habitation – these will include electrical requirements, lighting, plumbing, materials to be used, ergonomics, ventilation, and the intelligent use of space.

Hiring one is expensive – The price of hiring one will greatly depend on the scale of the project. Oftentimes, these professionals charge very reasonable fees. If you are not sure about how much it will cost, it would be wise for you to ask and decide if you would really want to invest in it.

They only work with very costly materials – They can work with both cheap and expensive materials. The good thing though is they can work within the budget and requirements you give them. You need to work with an experienced one so you will get the best quality products at the most affordable price.

Formal education is not necessary – This is a very challenging profession involving different tasks. Also, it will require a certain set of skills and knowledge. Obtaining a formal qualification from a reputable organization will guarantee a spot for you in the industry.

They cannot work with existing structures, objects and materials – Their main aim is to achieve their client’s interior design goals. If this will entail the stripping of a building, they will need to discard everything away. But this is not always necessary.

Don’t need a plan – These professionals cannot work without a plan for the job they are about to do. In fact, planning is considered the most crucial part of their job.

Don’t need to work toward a budget – An excellent plan will come with a very clear idea of how much will be spent. These professionals must be aware of what is affordable and what’s not. As a client, you need to set a budget and leave the magic touch to them.

10 Reasons to Use Revit Architecture for Homebuilding Design

We know that BIM is becoming mandatory for large scale projects, but it’s easily arguable that Revit is also a great choice for homebuilding design and here are 10 reasons why:

1. Iteration

This is perhaps the most important reason you should opt for Revit as opposed to 2D alternatives such as AutoCAD. Design without iteration is engineering. If you’re building your home you’ll want to design it and personalise it by choosing the right lighting and colours to match your lifestyle. These are however complex matters to assemble into one architectural project. You can of course iterate with a pen and pencil, but with Revit you can iterate y faster and smarter. Changes propagate from model plans to facades to sections to the final output drawings. This way you can share and review the entire project once you have made a change. Slowly but surely you can evaluate options and make the best design choices with a permanent holistic view of the project.

2. Components

Revit has a vast array of manufacturers freely publishing their products as family components to be used in your project. This includes furniture, lighting, glazing, partitions and just about any equipment imaginable. This way it’s very easy to assemble your house using real products and avoid using generically sized drawings that might not fit your space. Manufacturers also embed significant metadata to their Revit components, from sizing and finishes available to product codes to assist in purchasing or requiring an offer.

3. Scheduling

Homebuilding architecture may be about small scale projects but it’s also about tight budgets. With Revit you can set up scheduling early in the design phase and make sure you don’t go over budget on any area. See how this complements the iterative nature of Revit as schedules update automatically, so you can compare how much surface area, wall covering, windows etc. you have in one version and in the other. This allows you to make relevant, measurable and ultimately, realistic e evaluations of different design options.

4. Standards

Revit is the industry standard across nations when it comes to BIM. This makes contracting a Homebuilder Drafting Service veryeasy. In this case popular is good as you can sample a wider market of service providers and find the professionals with the relevant experience you’re interested in.

5. Cross

Discipline Integration Revit handles not only the architectural design phase but also structural and MEP. This means you can outsource CAD services that you can’t handle in house and not worry about the various disciplines not connecting together. With Revit you have all the design and engineering elements in one master Revit file. Of course with outsourcing it’s best if you go for a Residential Drafting Service provider that can handle the entire workflow to reduce any friction. Revit is great at producing output drawings fast and of maximum clarity. You model once and cut sections as many times as you want, so you make sure that there are no plumbing intersections and you can understand how it all fits together.

6. 3D Output

Revit works at its core directly in 3D, so you don’t have to spend money on producing renders of your house. As you iterate you don’t need high end renders and here Revit shines with a plethora of visualization options. You can cut a 3D model with a section box and peer inside that bedroom while you see how it relates to the staircase, or cut through that second floor and reveal the ground plan in 3D. When it comes to finishes and final details Revit can produce high end renders but it also plays extremely well with industry leader arch viz software from Autodesk suite, such as 3dsMax. Getting a Revit model in Max is straightforward and enables photorealistic renders from any angle. Most importantly, unlike using AutoCAD, or other drafting packages, you are sure that the 3D model the visualization artist is using is the correct model and not a close approximation of 2D plans and elevations.

7. Phasing

Construction and phasing are also often a very useful feature to have with homebuilding. With Revit, you can control phasing projects where you restore an older house, add an extension or anothersegment to it. This is crucial in making sure the existing building and the final building match up properly. It can also help youphase the actual construction development. By keeping the entire project together, old and new in the stages they’ll be built, youcan ensure a smooth construction execution. This way you can commission a survey from a local contractor and have any Revit specialist, even from abroad be in full understanding of the project and work as if present on site.

8. Flexible Modeling Options

Not all houses have to be typical designs, with straight lines and generic features. You may want to push the limits a bit, make a statement, or maybe you just want to make sure you get an optimal use of space. Revit, with its massing tools allows for organic modeling with almost no constraints. Of course you’ll need to find a Residential Revit BIM Modelling specialist, but any shape is possible with Revit, and you’ll also be able to document it andproduce construction ready drawings for that shape. Moreover, Revit works well with other software such as Grasshopper for Rhino and with its own new Dynamo functionality so getting that parametric paneling on the main facade is no longer an issue.

9. Parametric Approach

Parametric doesn’t necessarily mean fancy, or cutting edge contemporary architecture.Sometimes parametric architecture is all about finding the right parameters to optimize for maximum solar gain and other environmental factors, such as accounting for wind distribution and thermal load. Revit is no stranger to such analysis if it’s important for you that your future home is sustainable. With easy integration with tools such as Vasari, a spinoff from the main Revit software and with Dynamo again, a professional Revit modeler can help you make the statement you’re after when it comes to caring about the planet.

10. Quality

Quality is of course in the detail. Revit can scale down to 1:5 drawings and even 1:1 if needed. At the end of the day you’ll needto make sure important details that cover wall-ground, wall-roof and other junctions are treated to great attention. Also it’s very likely that you’ll need some custom furniture to be detailed for manufacturing and assembly. Handling these final touches in Revit or leaving them to a contractor’s opinion can make the difference between a properly insulated house and one that’s chilly and noisy at places and times. With Revit you can use all the BIM information and push it further with 2D details by relying on suppliers information who often supply them. A specialized Residential Drafting provider will most likely already have all the typical details at hand and easily adapt them to the needed configuration.

These are many reasons as to why you should choose Revit for homebuilding design. Sure, you might argue that licensing and expertise comes at a steep price. In most cases you may find it difficult to find a reliable service provider that uses Revit however, it’s made a lot easier when you widen your reach across international borders and it is very easy to outsource such tasks to offices with years of experience in using Revit, usually with Autodesk certification and broad portfolios. Also by expanding your search the odds are that you’ll find the quality you’re looking for at a very affordable price.

4 Popular Styles of Architecture

Many different architectural styles have been used over the years. Whether it is the modern or traditional designs, they are designed with the intention of providing a unique and attractive look while also delivering the required functionality. For the modern architect it is much easier to showcase a design with the use of the latest software which can display the potential building in 3D form.

Here are four of the popular architectural styles:

Adirondack

The Adirondack style of architecture is appreciated for its rustic finish in timber. Most of the structures that make use of this style include boat houses, rustic kitchens, log cabins, or similar. It is a style that was created by William Durant and has been in use since the 1800’s. The intention of this style was to provide a construction method that was low in maintenance and low in cost. In addition to the structures in this design, the Adirondack style is becoming more popular with various pieces of furniture, including tables and chairs.

Art Deco

The art deco was an elegant style of architecture and was popular throughout the period 1925 to 1939. Most of the structures in this style relied on streamlined forms, geometric shapes, and smooth lines. Plus, the structures can be completed with bright and garish colors. Art deco was seen as an opulent and modern style that was commonly used in the construction of train stations and the interiors of cinemas. Other uses for the art deco style include fashion, jewelry, furniture, and textiles.

Modern

The modern style of architecture is based on building the structures that include minimal ornamentation and generally simple in design. Any homes built using this style are clean and functional yet free of clutter. The overall shape of a property is boxlike and has an emphasis on vertical and horizontal lines, as well as rectangular forms. Plus, the construction materials rely on modern materials and systems and include a lot of concrete blocks, exposed steel, and open spaces.

Gothic

The gothic style of architecture was most popular throughout the late medieval period. The characteristics most noticed with this style included large individual windows, vaulted ceilings, pointed arches, gargoyles and flamboyant designs. This new style of design in its day was able to help inspire the more unique look of cathedrals, churches, and castles. The gothic style made it possible to build structures that were light, pleasant, and airy. Also, the style of gothic architecture varies across different countries.

Outsourcing Architectural Design Development

How common is outsourcing design development in architecture practices? We think it happens all the time, for big brand-names and small studios alike. It may not always be formal outsourcing, but it carries the same core principles. One way of basic outsourcing is using interns and graduates that work in temporary roles but handling much of the design development work and less of the more demanding creative and conceptual design work. One more sophisticated and organized form of outsourcing is hiring an outside firm, either local or international. Such a firm effectively becomes a design partner, seamlessly integrating in the company’s architectural design team.

A company abroad, for instance, would handle all the drawing/modeling tasks but is not usually in direct contact with the client, nor is it present in meetings and basically works hard to deliver on the lead architect’s requirements. That’s why using “outsourcing” as a term to describe working with interns and graduates is warranted, but as we’ll see, it may often not be the best approach.

Almost all companies fit in one of the two categories above as a natural market adaptation to reduce costs with tasks that, by their nature, are fairly easy to delegate. This is a common practice nowadays and it is a perfectly fine approach, especially when there are proper communication channels in place between the low level and high level staff. Managing an office and/or a suite of projects is a task in and of itself, leaving little room for the drafting or modeling work.

So the question now becomes which one of these work forms is the most optimal? The short answer would be that each company has specific needs and a specific culture, but if we look closely we can easily determine a general trend. Whilst the use of interns and graduates may solve a problem in the short term, the need to constantly re-hire and retain them can be a major distraction. Instead, using outsourcing firms for the architectural design development phase means that you are partnering up with highly skilled professionals, with zero overhead costs. Such firms are often specialized in specific domains where they’ve honed in-house systems that allow them to work extremely fast, relying heavily on advanced BIM solutions. Outsourcing firms can also guarantee on schedule delivery since they typically have buffer resources and larger numbers of employees.

When looking at outsourcing firms, there is little to no distinction between the interaction workflow you will have with local versus international companies. The problem can arise when you limit yourself to a small market, the local one, and you end up constantly swapping providers of outsourcing services and thus rely on new firms to pick up where the previous ones left. The solution is to tap into the international market and chose a quality, reliable partner for long term collaboration. Looking broader as opposed to narrower has the added advantage that you will likely find providers with lower production/management costs that will translate in a much better pricing and therefore a more competitive offering.

In today’s hyper-connected global economy, communication is a non-issue and offshore collaborations become opportunities instead of challenges, allowing design leads to focus on the core aspects of their businesses.

The Many Benefits of Glass Railing

Glass railing has a wide range of applications. It’s used from shopping malls, apartments, banking halls to swimming pools. The railing is preferred by many people due to the benefits that it comes with. The benefits include:

Unobstructed view

Whether you install it indoors or outdoors the railing provides you with unobstructed view of the surrounding.

The unobstructed view allows you to monitor activities. If you install the units in your swimming pool, you are able to check on the people occupying the pool. This allows you to easily monitor accidents such as drowning.

The unobstructed view gives your small room a spacious look. This makes the railing ideal for smaller apartments that you want to appear larger than they are.

Since it comes in different sizes and shapes, you can install railing in almost any place that you want.

Customizable

Just like you can customize glass, you can also customize glass railing. One of the ways of customizing the railing is using different tints. You can use different tints including: grey, bronze, brown, black and many others. The tint that you choose depends on your needs and preferences.

Another way of customizing the railing is by engraving the glass with your unique writing and artwork.

Tough

While many have the notion that glass railing is brittle and delicate, this isn’t the case. The railing is made from toughened tempered glass that makes it withstand pressure and shock. Due to this the railing is able to withstand tampering by children and hostile adults.

When the pressure is too much for the glass to withstand, it breaks into smithereens instead of normal pointed glass bits.

Easy to maintain

Who doesn’t want railing materials that are easy to take care of? Since the glass railing materials don’t corrode or rust, you don’t need to worry too much about them.

To maintain the railing looking great you only need to clean it on a regular basis. Since it doesn’t absorb stains, you can easily wipe the stains and dirt using a sponge and glass cleaner.

Privacy

Who thought glass can give you privacy? There is opaque glass railing that provides you with all the privacy that you need. You can buy already opaque glass railing, or sandblast the regular glass pieces to provide the opaque barrier. To brand your company, include logos and addresses of your company on the opaque glass.

Easy to install

Compared to stainless steel and cable railing, glass railing is easy to install. In fact, you can install it without prior experience. All you need to do is secure stainless steel spigots to the ground and then mount the glass panels on the spigots.
