New Stained Glass at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church

St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church opened it’s present building for worship in 1876. This Romanesque Revival church, located in Toronto, was designed by architect William G. Storm.

In 2015, a committee from the church commissioned EGD Glass to design and fabricate nine new stained glass panels for the tympanum windows above the three main doors at the front of the building.

EGD Glass took a modern approach to the design of the windows, while taking care to incorporate traditional motifs found in the existing rose window. The existing rose window features an ornamental floral pattern. This floral detail was hand-painted onto the new windows. Silver stain highlights of yellow were added to complete the process and the windows were fired in a kiln for durability.

Digital Stained Glass?

While searching for new and innovative stained glass projects, I  instead discovered an innovative new media company based out of London called, Lumacoustics.  They specialize in interactive spaces providing digital experiential media for events.

At an event, Bloc 2011, Lumacoustics designed an installation as an “arching digital stained glass that appeared to go beyond the stage floor”.

The display was designed as a modern twist on a 1850s Bristol Byzantine architectural style and was audio reactive with an endless combination of effects.

Take a look and let us know what you think.

Here’s another video of a Lumacoustics design using projection mapping, pretty fascinating.
