Building Enclosure Features PA State Police HQ
published October 6, 2017
The award-winning Pennsylvania State Police Philadelphia Headquarters caught the attention of Building Enclosure magazine. BKP designed the facility with a creative steel and glass curtain wall facade system. The layered exterior gives the building a sense of transparency while still maintaining strict security and solidity requirements.
“Obscured Solidity: Blending Security, Transparency into High-Performing Facility” by longtime BKP collaborator Amanda Gibney Weko covers the team effort that led to the building’s design. Earlier this year, the Construction Management Association of America Mid-Atlantic Chapter honored the headquarters as its 2017 Sustainable Project of the Year.
