Intersections Proceedings

Author(s): Georg Rafailidis

This paper documents two years of collaboration with the Corning Museum of Glass (CMoG), where two groups of graduate architecture students lead by a team of two faculty members, were able to develop projects – architectural glass components– in consultation with glassblowing experts and the resident material scientist at CMoG, and ultimately participate in the fabrication of the prototypes at CMG’s world-class glassblowing facility, GlassLab.
