I loved, loved, loved being at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Show in Chicago last week. While our editors have been hard at work the past few days telling you all about the glass and glazing products and projects they saw, I saw another trend. A different trend. In fact, it’s a very disturbing, scary trend. The AIA Show is always a good walk, as we say. Not only can you see what’s new in glass, but you get to see the new and innovative in a whole bunch of other industries, as well. Who knew you could create customized water fountains for the backyard? By the end of… Read More »

Can you believe that it is June already?  Depending on where you live, June is either your first glimpse of summer or your last of spring. June also means weddings, graduations and Father’s Day. But for me, June is all about something different. For me, June is all about architects. That’s because the June issue of USGlass magazine focuses on the architect-glass industry interface, and our Architects Guide to Glass & Metal bi-monthly has its largest issue of the year. And it’s also the month we prep for and attend the American Institute of Architect’s annual convention, which will be held June 26-28 at McCormick Place in Chicago. If you… Read More »
