Glass Magazine’s Reader Photo Contest highlights exceptional interior glass and photography by their readers. Editors asked for photos that showcase innovative interior glass applications, from staircases to glass partitions. The Photo Contest celebrates what’s possible with interior glass and to recognize the complexity and aesthetic value from our industry. Finalists and winners were selected through internal review, as well as a public voting and the Lions Park Library project in Costa Mesa was awarded an Honorable Mention.

As noted in Glass Magazine, “Young adult readers can enjoy the new Teen Room at the newly renovated Lions Park Library in Costa Mesa, California, enclosed by custom graphic glass installed by Giroux Glass, girouxglass.com. The room’s mosaic walls are 9/16-inch custom graphic, D2G Mosaic, tempered, laminated and lowiron glass, fabricated by Pulp Studio. “This photo very much shows the graphic appeal of glass and what can be accomplished with it design-wise,” says Melissa Fischer, instructional designer & LMS administrator, National Glass Association, glass.org. “It isn’t difficult to discern the reason why we are looking at this photo: because of the beautiful glass walls.”
