The Smithsonian, Washington DC

The Windows Into America stamp installation is a highlight of the Smithsonian National Postal Museum – the world’s largest gallery devoted to philately. The historic building was renovated to display a glowing wall of windows featuring reproductions of 54 historic U.S. stamps. The windows provide an unforgettable backdrop to the new William H Gross Gallery and required 65 separate films. For more images and details, see the Montage Graphix Case Study: Smithsonian Postal Museum. AGC Glass uses Montage to produce their Krystal Images; click for their case study: http://us.agc.com/sites/default/files/AGC_SmithsonianProject%20Profile.pdf.

The project was the cover story of glass magazine titled “Window to the Future of Decorative Glass”. The designers’ point of view is featured on the US Postal Service site: USPS Stamps: Design Studio.
