The custom carved and slumped insulated glass units (IGUs), now a signature of Nike’s retail flagships around the world, are an exemplary use of glass which express shape, movement and direction. The House of Innovation 000 façade is an example of where engineering and fabrication possibilities are celebrated through architectural design.
