Did you know that? The corning museum of glass exterior is a rectilinear glass-clad structure that offers whitened reflections of its surroundings, while inside it contains five new galleries, each bounded by curvy white walls and filled with daylight. This is a contrast to most museums that restrict light to preserve the exhibits. A system of skylights and overhead lighting creates a brightly lit environment. Thick concrete beams span the ceiling, helping to diffuse the light, and these rests on top of the curving walls.

Did you know that? The David S. Ingalls Skating Rink contains a span 200 feet long by 85 feet wide and does so with a natural sense of flow and polish. Though the rink is seemingly heavy and brutal it is truly a tensile structure. The main structure comes from a 290 foot long central arched backbone of reinforced concrete. The true beauty within the design found in its simplicity. Though it may look somewhat complex even in its symmetry, the main rink is simply a rectangular form with filleted edges. This adds emphasis and both literally and figuratively raises its roof to new heights.

Did you know that? The Crystal Cathedral was designed as a religious theater of sorts, acting as both television studio and stage to a congregation of 3,000. The facade is composed of more than 10,000 glass panels affixed to a framework of steel trusses. The panes are single-glazed and held in place by structural silicone, reducing the visual prominence of the joints. The entire interior is visible beneath the soaring, 130-foot-high ceiling. The lattice of white steel forms a continuous membrane of walls and ceiling, enclosed by the transparent glass beyond. At first glance, the triangular balconies appear to rest within the steel frame, but are supported by massive columns at each vertex.
