The Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion
Toledo, Ohio -
Begun in 2001 and completed in 2006, this addition to the Toledo Museum of Art was designed to house the museum’s collection of art glass, as well as a laboratory and glass-making foundry for the production of material. The plan, laid out on a single level, is based on a grid of interlocking glass rectangles linking one room to another. The walls of the rooms are of curved glass allowing views to adjacent and/or exterior spaces in various degrees of transparency or translucency. There are interior courtyards as well.
