Characterized as a design that “simultaneously fits in and stands out,” the new Louis Armstrong Center features a curved facade composed of faceted flat glass punctuated by vertical metal fins. SUPERSTRUCTURES provided Special Inspections for DASNY to support construction of this unique cultural facility in Corona, Queens.
The firm’s services included review of architectural drawings, specifications, and approved submittals. Our team conducted periodic inspections of the building’s curtain walls, windows, and slope glazing, and procured, observed, and reported on field testing. Visual examinations were performed from the buildings’ floors and roofs, comparing actual construction with the design architect’s approved drawings and submittals.
We’re proud to have contributed to the creation of this cultural center designed by Caples Jefferson Architects. It’s dedicated to Armstrong’s music and offers opportunities for education, entertainment, and research based on his extensive archives.
