Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Colored Glass Block Windows from Innovate Building Solutions serve as a perfect pop of beauty and color for the modernist art exhibit of Josiah McElheny at the Ohio State University's Wexner Center opening on January 27th. This breathtaking exhibit features large scaled sculptures that combine a modern architectural style with both dramatic colored glass pieces and performance based works.
The goal of this colored glass block application was to create a color and light filled space that would evoke the feeling of cathedral windows. To accomplish this, objective diamond shaped blocks in a kaleidoscope of colors (including amber, cranberry, emerald, evening sky, smoke and storm) were selected. The glass blocks were prefabricated into sections by Columbus Glass Block, a division of Innovate Building Solutions, and installed inside the stark white walls to fill the enclosed art viewing area with colored light. The result is a magnificent mixing of glass block color with art to highlight the dramatic work of the renowned McElheny.
"The use of colored or frosted glass blocks combines durability and security with a unique style and freshness," explains Mike Foti, Innovate Building Solutions President and Chief Executive Officer. "The color options are impressive, with fifty two standard shades and the ability to make unlimited custom colors for a one-of-a-kind design." In addition, the glass blocks are available in multiple sizes, shapes and patterns, can be pre-fabricated for ease of installation, and may be used for increased privacy or as an eye catching accent area. They are extremely versatile, both in home and commercial construction, or for renovation projects in showers, walls and windows. They can even be installed as an alternative to stained glass windows without the maintenance and restoration costs that often come with stained glass.
