Glasgow’s Windows

A collection of sketch axonometric studies of bay and corner windows found in Glasgow. The purpose of this investigation was to explore the variety of the bay and corner windows, observing the creative possibilities in what could be a simple puncture in a wall.

The flat window is sort of a filter between the interior and exterior environment, the bay or corner window give new dimensions to this, maximising the interiors natural lighting as well as allowing you to ‘step into the street’, enjoying its nature and community, the encompassing light and warmth, amidst the worst of Glasgow’s maritime climate, protected from all the unwanted elements. In parallel to this are Glasgow’s glasshouses, which similarly filter the climate, maximising the sunlight as a heat and light source for plants.

I intend to use these drawn studies as references for my thesis on light and health.
