Corning Inc. and View Inc. recently announced a strategic development agreement to leverage their combined capabilities to advance View’s market-leading dynamic glass. Corning is reportedly leading a financial investment in View as part of a Series E round of funding to support the development of dynamic glass technologies for exterior architectural applications. Jeffrey W. Evenson, Ph.D., Corning’s senior vice president and operations chief of staff, will serve on View’s board of directors.

View dynamic glass regulates the amount of heat and glare that enters a building. Dynamic glass can automatically transition between clear and variable tint in response to environmental conditions and user preferences. Occupants benefit from uninterrupted views, abundant natural light, and greatly improved thermal comfort, while building architects enjoy expanded design freedom. In a typical commercial installation, annual HVAC and lighting energy consumption is reduced by 20%, while HVAC peak load is reduced by 25%.

“We’re excited to collaborate with View,” said Martin J. Curran, executive vice president and innovation officer for Corning. “While dynamic glass has been in development for decades, we believe View’s unique approach will finally bring this technology into the mainstream. We believe the precise surface attainable through our fusion glass process, combined with View’s leading expertise in dynamic glass technology, will help us develop an innovative glass that can make dynamic windows a bigger part of exterior architectural applications. Additionally, our investment in View enables us to help further commercialize an innovative technology shown in our ‘A Day Made of Glass’ video series.”
