Corning Museum of Glass Expansion

The exterior of the new North Wing of the Corning Museum of Glass, designed by New York-based Thomas Phifer & Partners, is composed of a white aluminum skin covered in glass fins that are interrupted by sections of vision glass, including a 150-foot-long window that overlooks the adjacent greenspace.
