Sculptural glass
Glass in architecture. It started out as decoration. The first application of glass in buildings, in the centuries before the Christian era, consisted of cast 'lumps' of glass. Even medieval stained glass had little to do with the values of transparency and boundlessness that the material has come to represent in the modern era. For a long while after that glass was used primarily to fill window openings. Nowadays, however, technology has moved on to such an extent that you can not only construct entire facades of glass, but also roofs, floors and stairs. Glass has evolved into a fully fledged building material.

Buildings from the margins of modern history
The Trades Union Congress Memorial Building by David du Rieu Aberdeen (1948 – 1957) is one of the finest institutional buildings in London and one of the most significant buildings of the 1950s. It reflects both the austerity of the early post-war years and the optimism about the prosperity that was still to come.
