“Through artful combination of glass, materiality, lighting, and homage to its industrial legacy, the Davidson-Gerson Modern Glass Gallery is as much a part of the glassworks on display as the collection housed within at Greenfield Village.”

“Now you come out of the Hot Shop where they have the glassblowing exhibit and see the sculptural glass vestibule as a draw and focal point,” [Ann Dilcher, AIA, LEED AP, principal at QEA] said. “I think it is also very important as an introduction to what is in the building, which is not just historic glass, but also current art glass. So the building tells that story is glass in the United States from very early pressed glass to what is happening today.”
The vestibule and the modern glass on display inside are just some of the modern elements added to the structure. To read the full story of the Davidson-Gerson Modern Glass Gallery, take a look at Volume 2 Issue 1 of Great Lakes By Design.
