Architizer Spotlights Zahner’s Collaboration with Top Architects Worldwide
Architizer is a media platform and online community connecting architects, engineers, and product manufacturers. Eric Baldwin, Firmwide Communications Manager for Perkins&Will, in his latest article on Architizer, explores how Zahner is redefining architecture today.
A. Zahner Co. has consistently expanded its legacy by pushing the expected boundaries of metal systems and actively engaging with the creative community. Bill Zahner, the current CEO, evoked international attention in the early 90s through company collaboration with architects such as Frank Gehry, Antoine Predock, and Gyo Obata. Today, the company works with architects and designers on diverse projects, from private galleries to public memorials.
Eric Baldwin of Perkins&Will highlights seven Zahner projects constructed around the globe in his latest contribution to Architizer. The article explores the eye-catching innovations made possible by merging the artistic vision of top architects with the new metals, technologies, and systems provided by Zahner.
There’s the National September 11th Memorial Museum Pavilion designed for reflection and remembrance by Snøhetta. Zahner was responsible for the custom metal façade and unitized metal systems.
And the Bloomberg Center at Cornell Tech. This Morphosis-designed building serves as the academic hub for the new campus on Roosevelt Island. It operates as a self-sufficient and energy-efficient building through sustainable design. Four stories and 160,000 square feet, the center features a louver-perforated skin made by Zahner and a double-skin façade that supports this Net Zero energy plan.
Take a deeper dive into these projects and discover five more collaborations challenging the status quo of architecture.
