    Toledo Glass Pavilion

    The Glass Pavilion was designed to serve two complementary roles: as art museum and as studio. Architectural glass is key to the twin roles. The glass walls divide space, while their transparency encourages visitors to connect objects and activities across boundaries. The Pavilion is unique in that it presents a close physical/transparent relationship between the art in the galleries and the artists in the glassworking studios.
