Glass for Airport Bridges
Location & Year: Houston, TX - 2005 Elkins was teamed with a painter for this civic art installation to identify a
project for four pedestrian bridges in Houston’s new international terminal.
The collaboration resulted in the design of glazing panels that were
inserted into the window walls of the bridges. The glass panels, which
had prescribed environmental demands, were etched and treated with
additional dollops of glass that reflect and refract light very subtly. These
panels also shield unattractive views from the pedestrian while allowing
natural light into the space.
