New York, US
American Museum of Natural History
Expansion of the New York’s historic American Museum of Natural History (AMNH), the new Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education and Innovation represents a masterpiece between Museums in US, due to its architectural shape to mimic a big, wild “Canyon”, with large curved glazed openings outward, to invite you on a journey toward deeper understanding of the exposed organisms.
Our team had the privilege of designing and producing a customized curtain wall system for the Great Hall and the west-facing windows, as well as for the skylight on the top of the Atrium, all crafted using “bird-friendly fritted glass” to prevent bird collisions.
Furthermore, the vertical curtain walls of the building have been engineered to optimize natural light intake, thereby reducing the energy requirements of the structure.
This achievement showcases the tremendous efforts, creativity, and problem-solving skills of our experienced team and partners. We’re proud to work alongside our partner W&W Glass to bring this iconic project to life.
