The Room of Remembrance at the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center in Skokie is one of unique areas in the 65,000-
square-foot museum that includes permanent exhibits with hundreds of artifacts, most collected during the last decade from local residents. The room pays special homage to the 6 million Jews murdered during the Holocaust. Representative names of victims line the walls in a tribute to those who were lost.
Linel Signature was selected for this
historic and monumental project. The
architect’s intent was to create a fluid
transition between the new and historic
libraries. LinEl’s superior infiltration
management skylight design brings
peace of mind to the owner and
The skylight helps create a very pleasant and open feeling for visitors and workers at the
library. The 160 foot by 120 foot skylight includes transition stainless steel panels to the
curbs and vertical side curtainwalls. The atrium is a dramatic focal point and has
made the library a destination, enhancing the entire library visit experience for all.
Linel Signature supplied a custom glazed canopy system to compliment this cutting edge
design located in Evansville, Indiana. The canopy consisted of stainless steel outrigger support arms
with point supported glass. The support arms continued into the interior lobby area, creating a
continuation flow of the exterior design.
Also included in the package was the point supported glass feature wall above the canopy. The
design had the element just above the entry being true vertical and then at the upper transition,
beveling out away from the building at a slight angle.
Linel Signature was selected to complete the glazed cover to this graceful and elegant
pedestrian bridge design.
The system is a 2-3/8 inch wide cap and tube rafter with internal guttering. The glazing is
tinted acrylic in the radius vault location and is glass in the vision and spandrel areas. Horizontal
louvers are at the junction of the vertical and vaulted glazing and at the ridge to provide convective and
efficient ventilation. LinEl also provided the soffit panels beneath the bridge deck, complimenting
and competing the design intent to create a gentle flowing look.
LinEl has been the sole above grade pedestrian walkway cover system provider at the campus
of IUPUI – Indiana University Purdue University at Indianapolis. Linel was once again chosen to
provide updated design and fabrication solutions for this latest element of the striking new IUPUI
LinEl worked closely with the architect to arrive at this system solution. Solar load reducing
linear frit patterned glass was selected for the glazing. LinEl’s rolled tube with segmented rafter
design offers internal guttering for complete infiltration control and a modern clean look. Metal soffit
panels were included by Linel to simplify contracting and coordination.
Customized stainless steel panels fabricated by LinEl Signature were selected for the
prestigious new addition and renovation of the Indianapolis Marion County Public Library.
The panels are a highly reflective “Super No. 8” and a linen embossed finishes.
The new addition embraces the historic existing library while simultaneously reflecting
the surrounding streetscapes. LinEl artfully and accurately created both flat and curved
panels to achieve the architect’s vision for the project. The panels are LinEl’s Series 4000
rain screen system with concealed hook and pin attachment.
The rotunda features a dual radius, tighter at the ends with a larger radius in the main
portion. The top crown is comprised of an outer ring, 36 inches deep by 24 feet long, stretch
formed to a true radius and connecting to secondary supports. Primary supports were clad
with custom finished aluminum panels to match zinc. True zinc panel fascia panels are just
behind the upper crown. Four successive lower sun shade rings are in segmented sections, all
following the varying radii. The entrance vestibule has stainless steel cladding and a
cantilevered glass roof. Linel engineered, fabricated and installed all exterior work at the
rotunda except the glazing, structural steel, and roof. On the interior, at the glass, at each sun
shade ring level are continuous convector grilles and covers custom fabricated by LinEl, each
made to follow the compound radii.
