The Corning Museum of Glass houses a renowned collection of glass artwork and historical glass.  The new 100,000 sq ft Contemporary Art + Design Wing, which is clad in white glass, includes a 26,000 sq ft gallery to showcase contemporary glass artwork.  Natural light streams into the North Wing through a large window and skylight to illuminate the glass displays.  SGH provided building enclosure design and construction phase consulting services for the project.
