Blind Light

A highly engineered glass box is the centre-piece to Anthony Gormley’s first major solo London Show at the Hayward Gallery. Frameless panels support a lightweight roof and platform for air-conditioning equipment. The glazing is of iron-free glass and as thin as possible to maximise the translucency of the walls. Lateral loads from crowd surges are resisted by the assembly of panes acting together. The construction was carefully studied so that the installation could be completed rapidly without risk of damage to nearby work.
