summary FRONT is a collaborative of Architects and Engineers based in New York City. Following is a brief description of an example project designed by Front which demonstrates the type of work that the firm is involved in.The project is an office and showroom adjacent to a glass manufacturing plant in Queensland, Australia. The client required a design vocabulary that would optimally demonstrate the production capabilities of the factory. The resultant design features a 70ft x 130ft continuous enclosure composed of overlapping, curved ribs of toughened, laminated glass. All the panels of the building envelope are composed of multiple layers of glass, fabricated in the adjacent factory, directly from digital shop drawings produced using Gehry Technologiesí CATIA/Digital Project.
