shanghai museum of glass

Via Design Bureau and Designboom, the Shanghai Museum of Glass has a gorgeous glass facade with glass-related words slowly glowing brightly and receding in a dark background.  According to Designboom:

“a solid black mass heads a bleak existing structure, marking the point of entrance for both the new museum and the compound as whole. the defining dark facade is made from u-channel glass imported from germany, sand blasted and enameled to reveal transparent glass-related words in various languages. LED backlights illuminate the structure from within, highlighting each term and adding a sense of depth and interest to the flat, rectilinear volume”

The project was designed by Logon Architecture of Berlin and Shanghai and Coordination Asia of Shanghai.
