Nike’s new flagship store in New York City utilizes custom carved and slumped insulating glass units to create a dynamic façade. Reflection, distortion, and transparency are combined to provide striking effects on and through the facade. This material solution to Nike’s concept for a lenticular membrane was developed during a research and design phase and verified through testing, all within a compressed retail project schedule.
This video describes the process of realizing the unique facade from design concept through completion including engineering challenges, testing protocols, mock-ups and sample reviews, and installation.
