For the sixth annual AZ Awards, our intrepid jury narrowed the field from over 800 submissions, received from dozens of countries, to select just 48 finalists that stood above the rest. In addition to presenting the AZ Award winners, Azure recognized these projects, products and concepts with Awards of Merit.
Narrow vertical stiles just under three centimetres wide seem to disappear into the glass facade, giving a bank of door-ways a “now you see me, now you don’t” quality. CRL-U.S. Aluminum didn’t compromise on performance to achieve this elegantly engineered design: the system meets or exceeds air infiltration and thermal standards and other energy conservation requirements. Glass panels 2.5 centimetres thick support door handles on installations up to 3.7 metres tall. The fully fabricated entrance also features an integrated LED system to highlight the vanishing exterior.
