London photo of the day: Rubik’s cube window


Or maybe it’s Tetris. I can’t decide.

This is from the abandoned restaurant in Chelsea; more images here and here.

    Nope, just the cheapest possible installation method for “art glass”, also known as stained glass. No difficult cuts. The lead channel is straight, quick solders at the joints. Mostly looks like relative inexpensive glass, too. (The ex made stained glass windows, very nice ones, and I picked up a lot from him.)

    seems a shame that the building is abandoned. looks like it has some lovely architectural details.

    Still, it looks as though there’s at least some red in there, which isn’t cheap even if it’s flash glass.

    Yeah, that’s why I said “mostly”. I love having even crap stained glass to see light through, so I’m sure this made it nice inside; it’s just that there’s lots of ways to make it simple but more interesting. You can still have all straight cuts and make it a lot prettier with diamonds at each intersection…for instance…the big pieces would be 8-sided, an irregular octagon.
