Dozens of high-profile projects showcase architects’ creative use of glass.

Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass) has added nearly 100 photos of new buildings to its interactive online project gallery atwww.vitroglazings.com, including landmark structures such as the new Amazon headquarters building in Seattle (also known as Amazon Spheres) and the award-winning Grove at Grand Bay in Coconut Grove, Florida, designed by renowned architect Bjarke Ingels.

Robert Struble, manager, brand and communications, Vitro Architectural Glass, said the project gallery enables architects to visualize Vitro Glass products in the built environment while also highlighting their versatility.

“Our coated, tinted, ultra-clear and clear products can be configured in hundreds of combinations to satisfy the aesthetic and performance demands of any building project,” he explained. “The project gallery, together with full-sized samples viewed under proper lighting conditions, gives architects another tool to help them select the best Vitro Glass products for a given project.”

Other new high-profile buildings featured in the gallery include:  

  • Eden Hall Campus at Chatham University, Pittsburgh, designed by Mithun, which was named one of the top ten building projects of 2017 by the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) Committee on the Environment (COTE); 
  • The University of Kansas’ Capitol Federal Hall Business School, designed by Gensler, which received a 2017 Rethinking The Future (RTF) Award; and
  • The Swedish Edmonds Ambulatory Care Center in Washington, designed by NBBJ, which has been cited in several national publications for innovation in health care design.  

The project gallery also assists architects with design and specification by integrating seamlessly with Vitro Glass’ online CONSTRUCT feature.

This tool enables users to construct and compare insulating glass units (IGUs) using performance data from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) International Glazing Database (IGDB).

It also allows them to generate, with a single mouse-click, industry-standard 3-part Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) specifications for any all-Vitro Glass configuration. 

Visitors to the project gallery can search or sort projects by architect, glass fabricator and glazing contractor. Other search filters include building name, city, state, province, ZIP code or country, LEED® certification and project type, such as office building, health care facility, and educational, municipal or government building. GOOGLE MAPS™ technology provides directions to exact building locations.
