leaded glass skylight, Hart Memorial Library, Troy NY

    Newer Older

    the leaded glass ceiling in the main reading room of the public library in Troy, New York; last week I uploaded a few views of the exterior of this ornate Victorian gem -- the interior is equally fine

    Hart Memorial Library in Troy, New York; completed in 1897 and designed by New York City architects J. Stewart Barney (1869-1924) and Henry Otis Chapman (1863-1929)

    Kurt Modler, Kate Broderick, and 9 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      This reading room must be a great place for dreamers...love the soft blue light through the windows.

      thank you, G524; yes, the leaded glass of the windows and skylights of this room seem like they would be conducive to an imaginative mindset

      Can't help but conjure up imagery of Nouvel's Institut du Monde Arabe

      No. I can think of two similar, one at the Madison WI capitol and Wright's Oak Park IL Unity Temple main room.
