Thread: Crystal Palace

  1. #1

    Crystal Palace

    Hi! I'm doing an undergraduate thesis in art history and I'm
    looking at the devolopment of iron and glass buildings starting
    with the Industrial Revolution and their influence on the
    integration of interior and exterior space. Anyone who can
    give me input on this topic would be greatly appreciated.
    So far, I'm reading the book, Space Time and Architecture.
    It's incredibly fascinating, but also very dense. Again,
    any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks--Michelle--e155@academic.truman.edu

    The Crystal Palace was one of the first major uses of
    steel & glass combined in a light building.
    My sympathies to you for I am also working on a thesis--
    The role of the Architect in the Design & Construct Process.
    Can you help with any suggestions?
    Thanks Ken
