NEW INDIANAPOLIS AIRPORT INDIANA USA Architects: HOK
500 square metres antique stained glass.
Inspirations have been drawn from poems commissioned
by local writers in Indianapolis; thoughts of welcome,
home, warmth and safety to dreams of adventure,
excitement, far off places and the future.
Some of the windows have the text acid-etched into the
surface of the glass while others are based on
references to the local landscape at different
times of the day and year.
The commission is one of the world’s largest stained
glass projects at a total of over 500 square metres,
it includes 14 windows of differing sizes with
114 sealed units and 2,385 individual hand made
panes of antique glass.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
