Metal in tune with glass at new museum pavilion

October 01, 2008 |

Dedicated to the art of glass, the new Myrna and Sheldon Palley Pavilion for Contemporary Glass and Studio Arts at the University of Miami's Lowe Art Museum is the first major addition to the museum in 12 years.

The 3,500-sf building, designed by Mateu Architecture, Coral Gables, Fla., incorporates elements that show off the inherent qualities of glass, including a crisp white exterior with rows of windows that are offset by the insulated metal composite panels from Centria. More than 860 sf of Formawall Dimension Series panels in Dove Gray were specified for the project.

Aesthetics, ease of installation, and compatibility with the glass and window systems were the primary reasons for specifying the panels, according to the architect. The exterior wall system is also Cradle-to-Cradle Silver-certified, helping to meet the project's environmental goals.
