This paper describes the making of a twisted façade, including glass. Its materialising has great similarities to that of freely doublecurved glass. The various encountered problems were approached integrally. Possible uses of prototypes are illustrated with building models. The study of twisted buildings leads to a process in which concrete moulds are used to produce doublecurved panels of glass and metal.
