The great fascination of glass-fronted buildings is the way they create inter-relationships. A building no longer stands alone as a discrete structure, it becomes part of a complex kaleidoscopic jigsaw that changes with every step we take.
Two days ago I showed a cream building that was subtly distorted and seen through a precise grid (click here to view). Today, a curved building with inevitably skewed lines and subtly tinted glass reflects a neighbour whose design can only be guessed at. Each pane of glass displays a different glimpse, disconnected from the adjoining panes. A pure abstract – take a step and the pattern shifts. It’s visual art on a grand scale. The city feels alive.
