This Ehrlich house has a suspended glass floor walkway. You can see it in the fourth image.

thanks andmylegsarelong.
i'm actually hoping to try to find some projects that aren't really the typical use of the laminated glass that all seem to end up looking like a shopping mall or vegas.
still looking...
thanks though.

I did a joke sort of thing that I posted on archinect. I mean... the rendering kind of sucks though. It uses a glass floor.

The American Antiquarian Institute has a glass floor along with an amazing collection of American Prose. But then again it is conventional....but it was a radical idea when it was built. The building is a fire proof vault....least the said it was when they built...way back when!

It was used for a while by vulture capitalists to store their rental junk for rubes. I'd rather someone live there.
