glass by Ed Carpenter

This work is one of the latest from Ed Carpenter, located on a central glass mezzanine tower that connects the two identical twin buildings called The Federal Building. I believe its a government building with offices and such. The glass utilizes lamination of bevels, prisms, three dimensional triangles of flat glass pinched between two prisms, and sandblasted areas to play with the light. I got there just as the sun was sinking low in the late afternoon, so the play of light was particularly special.
