Architectural glass curtain wall applications, like this one, involve an exterior building covering in which the outer walls are non-structural, but merely keep the weather out and the occupants in. As the curtain wall is non-structural it can be made of a lightweight material, reducing construction costs. Both spandrel and vision glass panels were used here, allowing natural light to penetrate deeper within the structure, while concealing the electrical components and structural supports.

Ferguson Glass set to the task of applying the panels to their respective elevations within the glass curtain wall system. To ensure the silkscreened glass images were seamless, all of the installations had to be manufactured together. Continuity is key when multiple panels butt up against one another, especially the consistency and color of the ceramic frit coating that was applied.
