Corning Museum of Glass North Wing Expansion

CJS Architects has collaborated with Welliver on the Corning Museum of Glass North Wing Expansion.

This project included the Demonstration Building Envelope for the former Steuben Glass ventilator building and the connector to the new 26,000 sq. ft. contemporary art gallery building. This is one of the worlds largest facilities for glassblowing demonstrations and live glass design sessions.

The International Motorcoach Entrance is an indoor/outdoor reception area for visitors who arrive via tour buses. The area includes new amenities and a dedicated entrance to the new glass demonstration space in the North Wing addition. Exterior signage, large-scale maps and regional wayfinding will orient visitors and encourage inter-regional travel throughout Upstate New York.

Other aspects of the project completed by CJS include new perforated metal skirting for the outdoor Summer Stage, as well as comprehensive waterproofing drawings for the entire North Wing expansion.
