Construction: The Glass Pavilion at the Toledo is constructed such that the structural concepts are well integrated with the architectural concept. A part of the Museum of Art, this is actually an addition to the existing construction of the Toledo Museum of Art.
Location: The location of the Glass pavilion is strategically located across Monroe Street transversely to the Neoclassical Toledo Museum of art. It is found in the south most end point of the Victorian-style lodging district. The area surrounding the glass pavilion is a dense amalgamation of around 150 year old trees. The neighbouring areas surrounding this building have a rich heritage and culture. While construction of the building the people generally felt that it would affect the overall mood of the surrounding and they wanted the construction of the building to be stopped. However after completion the final viewpoint has been an interesting addition to the area. If anything it has only added value to the surrounding areas as a result of its completion.
Design Theme: The design theme of SANNA can be defined as “classically minimalistic”. There is an astounding accuracy of transparency and very exact shaped geometric structure in the building. There are not many floor levels to this glass building however it encompasses an area of 74000 sq. feet. The ground level landscape level of the house can actually accommodate mechanical space, loading dock and staff workshops. There is also place for classroom and future artistic gallery space. There is an obscurity in the transparency of the building. It looks apparently simple however it has a lot of detailing and a lot of accuracy to create the minimalistic effect of the house.
