Modern Take On Stained Glass In Amsterdam

Share |

Dating as back as the 7th century stained glass has evolved and spread extensively especially into the architecture of churches. Today an artist Stefan Glerum uses it to transform an Amsterdam housing complex. 18 meters of glass illustrate the rich story of the region and looks noticeably different from the classic style stained glass art.


Inserted into the brick facade the expanding glass panes are colorful and bright. They encompass the brief histprical moments starting with the 19th century gas extarction to the World War II to post-war period.

The end look is quite impressive. The modern take on the stained glass doesn’t really take away from its beauty, so we’re hoping to see it more in the modern architecture. What do you think?
