Really made according to the old technology glass have lower reflection. This is because in earlier technology the glass forwarded through the steel shafts. This glass had not perfectly smooth. Currently on modern technologies molten glass continuous flow spreads on the surface of molten tin or lead. The glass turns out perfectly smooth. For this reason, the glass of the old type discontinued almost everywhere.

Can anyone explain why there have been so many traditionally-designed rowhouse mansions built in Chicago recently? Are they replacements for more humble buildings? Are there underdeveloped neighborhoods being filled in? Is the style, or are the architects, very fashionable amongst a certain class of people? I think of Chicago as the city that worships Mies and despises Lagrange, so it's refreshing to see these neatly designed contemporary traditional houses.

Newly-built Excelsior hotel in Shamkir city built in traditional German style is another example from Azerbaijan. The reason behind it is that Shamkir (former Annenfeld) used to be a German settlement in Azerbaijan.





The interior design also reflects the idea behind it:
