Corning Museum of Glass : Bridge Gallery : 2002-2004

Originally connected to the Gunnar Birkerts (1980) designed Art and History Building by a small enclosed bridge, this proposal replaces the bridge, which restricted circulation, with a new glass and aluminum enclosed Bridge Gallery. The gallery functions as a viewing and introduction gallery to both the Art and History Exhibitions and the Changing Gallery Exhibitions.

Formally, the change in elevation of the connected structures is emphasized in the sloped floor plane of the new bridge, the circulation path is marked with a series of illuminated glass benches extending into the viewing gallery.
