Skyline Design - Lehigh University

Skyline Design (Chicago) worked with artist Larry Kirkland and Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Architects to create two monumental etched-glass panels that reflect the mission of Lehigh University’s STEPS (Science Technology Environment Policy Society) center. Spanning a curtainwall of 70-by-20 feet and a window measuring 15-by-22-feet, the image was the largest Skyline had ever undertaken. To create the image—which features the complete vascular system of a hardwood tree and the locally significant American chestnut—Skyline employed its proprietary eco-etch Fotoglas process, an alternative to traditional ceramic-frit methods.
