Exhibition with BlingCrete™ by Heike Klussmann and Thorsten Klooster at the National Glass Centre NGC, Sunderland.

18 March – 10 July 2011

One of the most striking architectural developments over the last 50 years has been the increasing presence of glass façades (…) affecting both our environment and people’s lives.
Façade: Through a Glass Darkly – The exhibition explores some of the origins of this in the radical writings and architecture of the 1910s onwards, the subsequent development of glass technologies, and the range of its manifestations and effects since.

With: Thorsten Klooster and Heike Klussmann / Alexander Apóstol / Foster + Partners / Gelitin / Gregor Schneider / Ian Kiaer / Jeffrey Sarmiento/ Michael Raedecker / Mossessian and Partners / Ola Kohlemainen / Phil Coy / Sauerbruch Hutton.

Curated by Rob Wilson, developed from an original idea by Grainne Sweeney, NGC.

Preview & drinks reception: Thursday 17 March, 6-8pm National Glass Centre, Liberty Way, Sunderland (UK), SR6 0GL
