Strong, but somewhat translucent, these glass blocks emanate a swirled texture from the outside and a mysterious potential beyond. Both an architectural element and a conduit for filtered light, they can often substitute for windows...but since they don't open circulation is not impacted.

Glass blocks can be considered barriers, but also visual passages...two-sided, as so many facets of our world. Viewing issues and concerns from both sides can offer benefits and pathways to problem-solving, just as these glass blocks provide an vital constructional component to this building.
