We wanted to take a moment to share a great video our friends at MdeAS Architects produced to commemorate their 25th Anniversary as well as congratulate an outstanding architecture firm we’ve had the pleasure of doing business with on multiple projects over the years on such an impressive and meaningful milestone! Please enjoy their 25th Anniversary video: 



MdeAS Architects is an award-winning architecture firm based in New York City. With an expertise in high-performance glass facades, the firm’s body of work is varied across project types, including commercial, public space, residential and interior projects. 


Our work alongside MdeAS has been primarily within our Pilkington Planar™ point-supported structural glass and Sotawall curtainwall division. We are and always have been proud to be a partner in assisting MdeAS Architects with the creation of truly iconic buildings and look forward to working on more in the future!

The rapidly developing technology of high-performance facades has emerged as the key to building integration, and central to the realization of resilient buildings and a sustainable built environment.
