Connected by Glass: Looking at Windows

For two thousand years, windows have provided light, insulation, and visibility between interior and exterior spaces. The strength, transparency, durability, and beauty of glass make it an ideal material to make buildings a little less dark and a little more open. Especially during the time of Covid-19, windows have allowed us to participate in the world from behind a protective barrier. In this episode of Connected by Glass, we will look at the history, evolution, and future of the window, one of modern life’s simplest tools, and how it has transformed design and architecture. We’ll be joined by: Denise Allen, PhD, Specialist in Roman Glass Tony (Anthony) Board, Program Director, Advanced Windows, Emerging Innovations Group, Corning Incorporated Lihong Liu, Sally Michelson Davidson Assistant Professor of Chinese Arts and Cultures, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor The conversation will be moderated by Katherine Larson, Curator of Ancient Glass, at The Corning Museum of Glass.
