While aluminum’s use in architecture can be traced back 100 years, as today’s buildings embrace sustainability, the material’s high durability and recyclability are bringing it to renewed prominence. At Hunter Douglas—a leading manufacturer of window coverings and architectural products—the use and reuse of aluminum has been a mainstay since 1946, when the company developed technology for continuous casting of the recycled, lightweight metal. As the company’s use of aluminum continues to expand to applications like ceilings, its commitment to this ever-adaptable material holds much architectural promise for greater innovation and deeper sustainability.
