The Star-Spangled Banner Flag House

Baltimore, Maryland, USA

About

This Work

An expansive glass flag façade that replicates Mary Young Pickersgill’s star spangled banner welcomes visitors to the museum built in her honor. To prevent the structure detracting from the flag design, clear laminated glass fins were used as structural support for the façade. The glass support system is braced laterally by steel truss support towers at the flag perimeter. To duplicate the colors of the flag within the glazing, Novum sourced an international network to find a glass fabricator who could provide the precise red, white and blue frit.
