September 7, 2018

Glass Magazine has announced the winners of the 2018 Glass Magazine Awards. The prestigious glass and metal industry awards program recognizes the best products and glass applications the commercial, retail and fabrication markets have to offer.

To determine the winners in the product and project categories, Glass Magazine submitted nominations to a panel of judges representing all segments of the glass and glazing industry. The judges then selected a winner in each category. The winners will be featured in the September 2018 issue of Glass Magazine, the Sept. 11 edition of e‐glass weekly and on GlassMagazine.com.

“These projects appear to have gone beyond the utilitarian aspects of transparency and reflectivity to push the boundaries of what is possible,” says John Stephenson, Glass Magazine Award judge and senior architect and envelope specialist, BRPH Architects and Engineers. “There are some truly remarkable examples in these entries that combine the art and science of what we do as designers and builders to create something original and new. I believe that nothing speaks to the state of our building technology as the role of glass in defining the contemporary building envelope.”

“It's amazing how our industry continues to evolve, responding to the design challenges presented with innovative new product developments, new equipment and tools,” says GMA Judge Alice Dickerson, founder/managing director, Division 08 Marketing LLC.

Glass Magazine Award winners will also be recognized on Thursday, Sept. 13 at 3:00 p.m. in the Express Learning theater during GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo in Las Vegas. 

Special thanks go to GGI which sponsored the 2018 Glass Magazine Awards.
