Glass Magazine

The University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning and Guardian Industries formed a new collaborative research partnership in advanced glass materials.

An award from Guardian will result in two architectural research studies as a part of the new Guardian–Taubman Research Alliance. The projects will draw on Taubman College’s design and fabrication expertise, enhanced by an interdisciplinary team of researchers from engineering, robotics and sustainability science, as well as experts in the construction, real estate and building industries.

“Guardian prides itself on its innovation,” says Sheldon Davis, vice president for research and development at Guardian Glass. “Employees throughout the company, including those beyond our R&D capability, take pride in our innovations. We push to find new ways to create value for society and to reduce the resources used to do so.”
