It's called a butt joint. To achieve this look you'll need a lot of engineering (the corner cannot carry any load). Your glazier and structural engineer will be able to help you with this.

Reasons to adopt a strategy of sitting lightly:Deal with uneven topographyPreserve special site features, such as trees, vegetation and bouldersBuild on a floodplain, where solid foundations aren’t a sustainable optionConserve natural site drainageUtilize passive cooling in warm climatesAdapt to a remote site or one with difficult access, where it is harder for equipment to excavate and construct a large foundationReduce costs due to less site and concrete workAddress rot, mold and insect concerns by eliminating the intersection with the ground
