IAC Building

Latitude: 40°44'42.14"N
Longitude: 74° 0'26.42"W

The IAC Building is where architecture meets meteorology. The decreasing density dotted frit glass panels really create a mystical vaporlike aura.

The link has a time lapsed video showing the glazing installation. All the unitized panels were pieced together like a puzzle. There must have been extraordinary coordination between the structural and architectural elements to achieve what appeared to be a problem free installation.
