Their investigation focuses on the glazing of the recently renewed facade of the historical Great Arthur House, London. Including Paul Scheerbart's aphoristic poems for Bruno Taut's Glass Pavillion at the Werkbund Exhibition in 1914, Cologne.

About

The architectonic image of cities- what happened to it? Let's not complain about that. A wholly new one will arise. In the settlements the urban landscape will completely disappear, and individual buildings will acquire a completely different meaning. If we rise above the Earth in a balloon, what we will see below are houses strewn about like grains of sand, by now arranged in rows as well. The grains of sand will join together and the higher we rise the more they will appear like a fog, now thicker, now thinner, spreading over the green countryside. And in this fog, a few glistening spots sparkle, smaller and larger, like stars in the sky. It is the places of worship, erected in glass, illuminating the light. Everything has been loosened up; and they bloom here and there like rare and precious flowers. The stars in the sky and the stars on earth greet each other.*

*Excerpt from 'The Earth is a Good Dwelling', Bruno Taut, 1919
