Project of the Year Runner Up 

The almost other-worldly exterior of the new Kinder Building, part of the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, is wrapped with laminated, translucent glass tubes.

Best Protective Glazing Project

The new VA Ambulatory Care Center features an eye-catching glass façade, combining creative geometries and blast resistance.

Best Jumbo Glass Project

In addition to the large lites being used effectively, glass is used throughout the lobby, providing a clean and welcoming aesthetic.

Best Project Team

The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences is Lubbock, Texas’s newest landmark. The 220,000-square-foot campus required careful coordination and cooperation for the project team, which manufactured and supplied the metal systems.

Best Green Project

Basecamp Lyngby is a private student and senior residence near Copenhagen in Denmark offering 786 apartments. Recyclable materials, modular construction, and even the organic structure of the façade underline the green design intent of the project.

Best Glass Interior

Pendry West Hollywood, Hotel and Residences is a luxury boutique hotel and condominium complex located on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles.

Best Decorative Glass Application

The ascending glass spiral of the new Hurricane Maria Memorial in New York City symbolizes the devastating hurricane which struck Puerto Rico in 2017, while simultaneously representing protection against those destructive forces.

Best Innovation for the Factory

A coating machine that applies protective coating onto both sides of the glass through a proprietary chemical vapor deposition process, transforming glass into a high-performing, water-repellent surface

Best Innovation for Installers

An all-glass entrance system solution that significantly improves on what is perhaps the most-specified rail system on the market.

Best Hardware Product or System

Bi-folding and sliding door and wall systems offer grand scale and minimal hardware for unobstructed views, along with acoustical and thermal benefits.

Best Glass or Glass Component

HMI’s C.10 with Microban is a protective glass coating that incorporates antimicrobial technology. Any glass shower enclosure manufactured by the company can be coated with the product.

Best Framing System or Component

The greater system depth, combined with three thermal performance options and two glass plane options, makes this a highly versatile framing system, bridging the gap between traditional framing systems and low-rise curtain walls.

R&D Award

This development combines architectural style seen in other regions with the windborne debris resistance required in hurricane zones.
