The historic Morgan Library and Museum in New York City outgrew its campus to house their art collections, various educational activities and concerts. The Renzo Piano Building Workshop with Bleyer Blinder Bell successfully combined the historic building with a beautiful modern glass-filled atrium, expanded galleries and a performance hall. The design team utilized fire-rated systems from Technical Glass Products in exit stairwells, open atrium spaces and full vision doors. Products installed include Fireframes® Curtainwall Series frames, Fireframes Heat Barrier Series doors and frames, Fireframes Designer Series doors, Pilkington Pyrostop® fire-resistive-rated glass and FireLite Plus® fire-rated glass ceramic.
