The Owens Corning World Headquarters in Toledo, Ohio, is a collaboration with Architect Cesar Pelli to design integrated art for the building. The result of two years of visits to Owens Corning factories around the world, Tom worked with scientists and engineers to select the materials he would use. The building’s exterior vestibule entrances, lobby entrances, courtyard entrances, large multi-layered wall panels and 300 foot transom frieze combine commercial clear and colored float glass with a composite of treated, colorized and fused glass fiber products.
