New York University Canopies

These canopies provide shelter to visitors arriving at New York University. The canopies feature a painted aluminum outer shell with an impermeable roofing membrane fastened to marine grade plywood for inner protection of the steel framing.

The cantilevered canopies also have 1” thick laminated tempered glass with a unique minimalist frit pattern and stainless steel bracket supports that float the glass off structural steel.

Our Role

Feature Walters took the architect’s original drawings and developed them into components. Walters Inc. worked in tandem with Feature Walters to develop the structural steel.  Metropolitan Walters conducted the installation.

Facts & Figures

  • Canopies consist of a painted aluminum outer shell with an impermeable roofing membrane fastened to marine-grade plywood for inner protection of the steel framing

Overcoming Challenges

This project drew heavily on Walters Group’s design and planning capabilities, which were necessary to coordinate work among several Walters companies, as well as other tradespeople.

Thanks to precision planning, glaziers arrived at the installation site to find that the tempered glass fit perfectly with the steel. Construction was seamless and easy from start to finish.

The Trellis at the rear of the hospital uses cantilevered cedar slats its length and makes use of painted aluminum column cladding to match the front glass canopy thereby creating visual unity between front and rear entrances.
