Untitled installation of four leaded glass skylights in the ceiling at Aird’s Lane, Modern Institute, Glasgow, by artist and musician Richard Wright, in collaboration with York Glaziers Trust – Britain’s oldest stained glass conservation studio.
Each of the four rectangular skylights house a steel frame comprised of nine individual panels – positioning within the structure specifically handmade glass. Cut at definite angles within an intricately designed lead-matrix to produce a three dimensional effect, the distinctively -textured glass interferes with the light to create a play on perspective through the use of light, reflection and the observer’s viewpoint.

The new building flows in continuity with the main house while its partial burying hides the volume and preserves the leafy environment.
