My “cloud” design studio this semester at IIT in the College of Architecture recently made a trip to Kansas City, MO to visit Zahner. Who is Zahner? They are the exterior metal fabricator of many of the worlds most famous buildings. Zahner’s mission is “To surpass the expectations of our clients by expanding the boundaries of high quality metal and glass used in art and architecture. Zahner will push the levels of technology while providing a worthwhile, challenging and safe environment for our present and future employees and associates.”
A little about their history; “Zahner has been engineering and producing advanced sheet metal surfaces for over 115 years. Andrew Zahner, great grandfather of current CEO/President L. William Zahner, ran a small business called Eagle Cornice Works in Joplin, Missouri in the late 1800′s. He provided custom architectural metal cornices to many of the surrounding towns in southern Missouri and Eastern Kansas. In 1897, Andrew Zahner uprooted his business and moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where he founded the A. Zahner Company.”
A few of their projects are:
Cooper Union, New York City, Morphosis
de Young Museum, San Francisco, Herzog & de Meuron
Wyly Theater, Dallas, OMA/REX
