SmithGroupJJR Little Caesars Global Resource Center – Glass Facade

As Detroit’s revitalization continues, a company that initiated the rebirth is spurring progress forward. Its founder was a pioneer and innovator in the food service industry and established a company that is fundamentally about family. Its current headquarters along with its proposed headquarters expansion is situated on a historic site in Detroit’s world class entertainment district. These fundamentals provided the inspiration for the new world headquarters, and in particular the building’s dynamic east wall. That facade consists of unique large format, self-supporting, formed glass panels manufactured with a technologically advanced version of an age-old process. The resultant articulation channels the style of the neighboring historic deco Fox Theater and Office Center. The unencumbered views that the frameless glazing provide connect the occupants with the city and embodies the company’s forward thinking philosophy.
