“The level of competition this year … shows a tremendous effort within our industry to continue to push the boundaries, while still providing quality on all levels to satisfy the architectural community, as well as building ownership,” says 2011 Crystal Achievement Award Judge Les Young, project manager, W&W Glass LLC, Nanuet, N.Y.
“I’m really glad to see the unique qualities of glass being used in so many different ways,” says fellow Judge John Stephenson, design director, Richard Wittschiebe Hand Architects, Atlanta. “It is great to know the [glass industry’s] innovation, technology and special expertise is continuing at a rapid pace.”
