Post Time:Oct 10,2011Classify:Industry NewsView:240

The James A. Michener Art Museum's new Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion has started to take dramatic shape in Doylestown with the installation of 20 231/2-foot-tall glass panels that weigh more than 11/2 tons each.

"The glass walls used in the Putman Event Pavilion will be among the largest self-supporting insulated glass units worldwide, and potentially the largest in the United States," museum director and chief executive officer Bruce Katsiff said in a written statement. "We expect museums to build architectural wonders, and this project will not disappoint our visitors."

Installation of the panels, which were made in Germany, began Friday and is expected to be completed next week by two local contractors. Each 5-foot-7-inch-wide panel, consisting of five layers of glass weighing a total of 3,350 pounds, took three to four months to make. There also are two glass doors and a glass panel over each door.
