Two high-profile architectural installations featuring Bendheim Wall Systems Lamberts channel glass receive prestigious AIA National Honor awards.
Bendheim Wall Systems worked closely with architectural design teams to provide Lamberts channel glass, the key exterior design element, for two AIA 2008 National Honor Award winning projects – the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art Bloch Building in Kansas City, Missouri and the Shaw Center for the Arts in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The AIA National Honor Award is the profession’s highest recognition of works exemplifying excellence in architecture, interior architecture, and urban design.

“These projects show the dynamic possibilities of designing with LINIT channel glass. The five lenses of Steven Holl’s Bloch Building are formed with custom glass channels in a double glazed curtain wall application, while Schwartz/Silver’s Shaw Center of the Arts, called the “lantern on the levee,” features a single glazed rain screen with its channel glass flanges turned outward” said Robert Jayson, President of S.A. Bendheim, Co., Inc. “Illuminating the channel glass-clad structures was critical to their design, and the installations – by Carter Glass for the Bloch Building and BHN for the Shaw Center – were exemplary.”
The Bloch Building and Shaw Center for the Arts join the extensive list of Bendheim Wall Systems’ multiple-award winning, high-profile channel glass projects including:
