As part of the event, PPG will recognize the 65th anniversary of Philip Johnson’s iconic Glass House in New Canaan, Conn., which was constructed in 1949 with ultra-clear, low-iron glass by PPG and later refurbished with Starphire ultra-clear glass by PPG. Johnson and his partner, John Burgee, were the architects of record for PPG Place, a six-building complex in Pittsburgh that includes One PPG Place, the 40-story, neo-gothic, glass-spired tower that houses PPG’s global headquarters.
