AGC Flat Glass Europe - Glass Partner for the City of Architecture and Heritage

With the opening of this French institution for architecture, AGC Flat Glass Europe - formerly Glaverbel - has, to quote the institution's President François de Mazières, established itself as the "glass partner for the City of Architecture and Heritage". This is proof for the world's leading flat-glass manufacturer that its innovative products meet even the most daring of architectural needs.

This partnership seals a shared approach to raising the general public's awareness of architecture and promoting this type of design. That was the key objective behind the renovation works to the City by architect Jean-François Bodin which, like the temporary galleries opened in March, will appeal to both amateurs and enthusiasts alike. For the European branch of AGC (Asahi Glass Company) Flat Glass, it also highlights the major role played by glass in contemporary architectural designs as well as innovation in the construction sector.

This cooperation is all the more natural now that the AGC Group's contribution to prestigious landmark buildings designed by renowned architects is increasing. These include the Multimedia Centre in Hamburg (Norman Foster), the Antwerp law courts (Richard Rogers), the Bolle project by Massimiliano Fuksas and the Allianz Arena in Munich to name but a few examples.

AGC Flat Glass Europe is also keen to keep up with new requirements. The Group develops intelligent glasses that are highly valued by architects, the result of a corporate culture that is keenly aware of the importance of research and development. These are intelligent glasses that open up an infinite range of opportunities that allow designers to give free reign to their talent. The latest, and by no means insignificant, example is antibacterial glass which will be presented at Batimat 2007.

So it was equipped with this expertise, backed up by excellent credentials, that AGC products were used to renovate the City. The manufacturer, for example, supplied Stratobel Eva Creation glass with integrated bronze mesh for the doors of the end pavilion in the Chaillot Palace along with elegant outdoor totem poles (glass information panels) that are refined, efficient and entirely transparent.

太阳或上升点与本命金星所呈的相位能使二人之间感受到彼此的爱和默契,特别是当它们呈柔和相位的时候,这对二人关系的发展将起主要的积极作用。太阳或上升点与本命月亮所呈的相位能够将太阳方的个性与生命力或上升方在社会中的表现同月亮方的本能情感联系到一起,除非它们之间呈硬相位,它们也会对二人的关系产生有利的影响。当太阳与太阳或上升点呈硬相位时,表示二人的性格上存在着不协调,而呈柔和相位时则表示二人性格上的类似或人生目标上的一致。月亮与金星的相位能使二人之间产生真挚的恋情,它将月亮方的情感同金星方的爱情系到一起。月亮同月亮或金星同金星所呈的相位会产生类似的影响,只是侧重的方面不同。而它们之间的硬相位可能会造成对方的情绪紧张。

  如果太阳或上升点与火星呈一定的相位,那么二人的精力和行动力将会明显对对方产生影响,这些影响可能是有利的,或恰恰相反,他们之间也可能会发生争执,通常是火星方的行动力同太阳方的个性之间产生的冲突所致。火星同火星之间的相位使二人之间的行动更容易影响对方,产生冲突的风险也就更大。相比之下,月亮同火星所呈的相位就有利得多了,它可以将月亮方的情感和本能同火星方的行动力甚至独断系到一起,使之向有利的方面发展。金星与火星所呈的相位更强调了身体和性的吸引,因为它将金星爱和美的标准同火星方的身体同精力连接到了一起,因此,所有的相位都是有利的,包括硬相位,它引起的摩擦对于情侣而言是极具挑战性的诱惑。

  月亮或金星同海王星所呈的相位所产生的影响通常令人愉悦,尽管海王方存在着迷失自我的危险。月亮方能敏锐的感知并理解海王星方一些不着边际的幻想,而金星方也为海王星方的浪漫气质所折服。月亮或金星方同冥王星所呈的相位将对二人的情感产生不利的影响,因为二人的交往过程中存在强迫的成分。

  所有关于水星的相位都会对沟通产生影响,特别是语言的沟通。所有与木星有关的相位都会使二人的关系向着乐观的方向发展。与土星相关的相位虽然会带来限制性的或者令人沮丧的影响,但是二人的关系将会更稳固持久,相对于硬相位以及同煞星所呈的合相位而言,六合和拱的相位所产生的影响更易于把握。土星与本命行星所呈的相位会给本命方带来痛苦,交往的乐趣会随之消失。如果土星与月亮或金星呈一定相位,那么即使月亮方或金星方的感情很专一,也挽救不了分手的结局。土星与太阳、火星、天王星或冥王星所呈的合相或硬相位所产生的影响也极为不利,麻烦将会接踵而来。太阳、火星与冥王星所呈的合相以及硬相位也会产生类似的问题,将导致分离或者强制性的在一起。

  天王星同太阳、上升点、火星或木星所呈的相位会使二人的关系中存在某种不确定的因素,会有突然分离或其他令人痛苦的变化发生。而任何星体与天王星所呈的硬相位都将是不受人欢迎的,尽管两人会因为突然的激情而结合,但最终的结果是他们不得不跟对方说再见。月亮或金星与天王星所呈的相位会将不可预知的或兴奋的成分引入到二人的关系中,这也许是有利的。

  与月亮的交点有关的相位,特别是合相,通常会使二人产生缘分天注定的感觉。北交点相位的影响会使人对进化中的事物敏感,而南交点则使人更容易满足于舒适的、不具挑战性的、熟悉的生活,他们渴望安定可靠的感情。

  比较盘中的任何相位所产生的影响都要视本命盘而定,将比较盘同本命盘割裂开分析的方法是不可取的,比较盘只是个人生活中的镜头,而镜头的形状要由盘主天生的性情来决定。
