Fabrication & installation of three large glazing walls. The largest of which, pictured here, is the Booth Wall. 24’10” wide, 6’10” tall, and 5″ deep, the frame houses 26 equally-sized pieces of clear, 1/4″ thick, tempered glass. Each “window” is individually illuminated a lights embedded in the frame. The frame’s perimeter fabricated from 5″ x 2.5″ x 1/8″ steel tube; its mullions from 1.5″ x 3/4″ x 0.083″ steel tube; and its glass retainers from 1/2″ x 1/2″ by 1/8″ steel angle. The retainers were welded on one side of the glass and mechanically fastened with button head fasteners on the other. All steel blackened and protected with lacquer.
