With the highly developed economy, many high-rise buildings are constructed in cities. In Penang, Malaysia, hundreds of high-rise buildings are erected. Because of their beauty and graceful style, two-layer glass curtain walls are super popular in these kinds of buildings. The purpose of this article is to examine the spacing between the two layers of glass curtain walls and introduce the latest research achievements for energy conservation in Penang. Based on Ecotect (Autodesk, San Rafael, CA) simulations, a 300-mm space between the two layers of the glass curtain wall can achieve maximum energy conservation. The major themes of this research include advancements in architecture structure measurements and analytical and simulation applications that provide insight into energy savings for high-rise buildings in Penang. In addition, it is hoped that these research findings can be applied to the future construction programs in Penang and in other parts of the world with similar infrastructure and climate. There has been a growing body of research and application in this field, but significant challenges and opportunities still lie ahead.
