LeGrande Ward: Stained Glass Details

The first glimpse of stained glass you get is the panels on the sides of the entrances.

These windows are lovely, and bring some beautiful light into the lobbies of the otherwise modern building.

I experienced some disappointment, however, to find that some other panes of stained glass are simply mounted on the exterior of the building. They do not act as actual windows or open up into the interior. Additionally, since they are high up, it's difficult to appreciate them at all. I had to zoom in quite a bit to get these pictures.

This is one of those classic examples where I am simultaneously elated (that the windows were saved and reused) and disappointed (that they weren't used in such a way that they could be appreciated as they should be).
