    Jasper, I think your suggested TOC is basically alright to go, one thing I may not be able to verify yet but would like to suggest is that there are seemingly quite a lot of technical descriptions of curtain wall technology from Chapter 2 onward. They should be somehow related back to your subject building in your research essay, but not just to purely describe the technology like a textbook.

What's your thought?
