The interior glass scope proved to be just as challenging as the exterior glass scope. The interior was filled with rooms within rooms of all-glass walls; mullion-less, butt-glazed, floor-to-ceiling glass room separators; all-glass stair railings; all-glass elevator enclosures, and all-glass doors.
The architect’s design intent became a perfect marriage of energy efficiency with transparency. The low-E fritted glass throughout allowed for a high degree of transparency looking out and into the library and provided internal spaces with generous daylighting.
