Volume 26, Issue 2 - March/April 2012

From the Editor

Go Ahead and Show Off

Welcome to the March-April issue of the Architects’ Guide to Glass & Metal magazine. Hopefully wherever you are reading this, spring has begun to peek out a bit, offering some pops of color and some warm sunbeams. I like to think about spring in much the same way as I think of a New Year. For months it’s been cold, perhaps a bit snowy, perhaps grey and dreary. Maybe in those winter months you feel a bit down and not as inspired as you’d like to be.

With the burst of spring comes an exciting awakening—a fresh start and a time to get inspired and think about everything you’re going to accomplish by the end of the year.

To start on your list, think about some of the most exciting glass and glazing projects on which you’ve worked over the past couple of years. Which ones have been cutting edge? Which ones have broken the boundaries of safe, traditional design?

Which ones made you say out loud, “Wow!”

Well it’s time to tell the world about those accomplishments and enter the first-ever Architects’ Guide to Glass & Metal Design
Awards. We want to see that great, glassiest work and share it with our readers around the world—show us your captivating curtainwall, gargantuan glass, masterful metal work.

So, what do you need to do to enter? Start by filling in the entry form on pages 12-13 in this issue. You’ll see the categories cover a broad spectrum of projects in both residential and commercial designs. Winners in each category will be recognized in the September-October issue of the Architects’ Guide to Glass & Metal, which will also be distributed at GlassBuild America in Las Vegas and glasstec in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Is YOUR project one of the next we should feature? There’s only one way to find out: submit your form today and start letting others see just what you can do.
