Snapshots: Great Glazing

  • The basics: Completed in the summer of 2016, the World of Coca-Cola Experience, Disney Springs, Florida, is similar to the original World of Coca-Cola Experience in Atlanta, with a sampling lounge, rooftop bar and merchandise store. Modeled after a 1920s Coca-Cola bottling plant, with many visual nods to the iconic glass bottle, the project is designed as an old-style brick building encased in a...
  • The basics: The 10,150-square-foot Monroeville Business and Technology Center near Pittsburgh currently serves as the business headquarters for PPG’s specialty coatings and materials business unit. The facility opened in 1960 and featured single-pane windows, common in commercial buildings at the time, but notoriously inefficient. The renovation involved the installation of a façade retrofit...
  • The basics: Michigan State University’s new Bio Engineering Facility is a four-story, 130,000-square-foot research laboratory building on the campus in East Lansing. A palette of gray, white and black in glass and metal distinguishes the facility from both the traditional red brick of the campus standard and beige of the cast concrete of the more recent structures. Laboratories have an open-floor...
  • The basics: Hunt Tower is a 235,000-square-foot Class A office building in Rogers, Arkansas. Housing multiple tenants, the vertically oriented building takes advantage of the area’s panoramic views. Two vertical structures make up the 10-story project, one clad in blue metal, the other in green. The high-rise has 11,450 square feet of garden terrace and features over 80,000 square feet of curtain...
  • The basics:  Opened in March 2016, Ace Hotel New Orleans transformed the 1928 Art Deco, nine-story Barnett’s Furniture building into a 234-room boutique hotel with a vintage-inspired interior. The 184,000-square-foot, mixed-use hotel and retail center combines two historic buildings with a new, four-story structure. The project called for multiple window solutions including hurricane...
  • The basics: The new chapel at St. Luke's Meridian Medical Center in Meridian, Idaho, offers a place for comfort, quiet reflection and spiritual care for patients, families and staff. All St. Luke's locations have chapels to address the spiritual needs of patients, families and staff, but in 2010 Meridian's chapel space was reallocated for patient care due to lack of space. In 2012 a group of...
  • The basics:  Completed in August 2016, the Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones de Segovia, Spain, is the city’s new convention center, housing an 800-seat auditorium. Once a royal hunting palace during the 17th and 18th centuries, the convention center now features an architectural glass façade combined with the original materials of stone and slate. The new façade incorporates more than 500...
  • The basics:  Owned by the government of Korea, the new 12,100-square-foot Land Development Exhibit Building in Seoul exemplifies the forward-thinking building performance encouraged by the country. Design goals for the government, which will interact with developing countries doing business in Korea, included showing sustainable practices and incorporating energy-efficient products into...
  • The basics: The Westfield Terminal 2 project at Los Angeles Airport is a $300 million renovation featuring a new design that "reflects the energy of LA's on-the-go culture," according to designers. A major challenge was completing renovations on schedule with the terminal open and operational during construction. Airport security also complicated the project, and locations for work constantly...
  • The basics:  The 101,500-square-foot Bill and Melinda Gates Hall, home to Cornell University’s Computing Science and Information Science departments, was primarily shaped by a constricted lot as well as the desire to add drama and character to this area of the campus. While the high-performance façade is a focal point of Gates Hall with its unitized glass curtain wall system and perforated...
