Marywood University, like many another, has its share of buildings with glazed curtain walls; there are vast expanses of glass around campus. It is also a beautiful, beautifully tended campus, and this beauty is reflected in all that glass, much of it with the architects’ connivance. It’s fun to try to get inside the architect’s mind and discover what she or he envisioned at the drawing board.

And then, with the changing seasons, or even time of day, old favorites take on rather different looks. It’s fun, too, when these walls vanish once the outside is darker than the inside. Join me, won’t you?
