WJE Awarded for Work on Eldridge Street Synagogue
Evoking the night sky, the contemporary design features spiraling ribs and white light emanating from a central Star of David. The complex motif was created by laminating layers of traditional stained-glass to large sheets of plate glass, using silicone in place of lead. This modern substitution allows extra light to penetrate the window. Reflecting on the fusion of traditional and contemporary design elements, the award jury applauded the window design for tying together the art and architecture of the building.
