PPG to Sponsor 61st Annual Progressive Architecture Awards Ceremony



Published January 22, 2014
 PPG Industries will sponsor the 61st annual Progressive Architecture Awards (P/A Awards) ceremony, Feb. 20 at The Modern at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

The P/A Awards, initiated in 1954 by the editors of "Progressive Architecture" magazine and now sponsored by Hanley-Wood, publishers of "ARCHITECT" magazine, are among the industry’s most prestigious juried awards. Their purpose is to recognize building projects that challenge the boundaries of convention and promote overall design excellence and innovation. Last year, 10 projects earned P/A Awards, including five in the U.S. and one each in Canada, France, Germany, Mexico and the Netherlands.

As part of the event, PPG will recognize the 65th anniversary of Philip Johnson’s iconic Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut, which was constructed in 1949 with ultra-clear, low-iron glass by PPG and later refurbished with STARPHIRE ultra-clear glass by PPG. Johnson and his partner, John Burgee, were the architects of record for PPG Place, a six-building complex in Pittsburgh that includes One PPG Place, the 40-story, neo-gothic, glass-spired tower that houses PPG’s global headquarters.

According to the company, PPG is the first U.S. float glass manufacturer to have its products recognized by the CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIED program, and it offers more C2C-certified architectural glasses than any other float glass manufacturer.
