Surprising Benefits of Stained Glass: Architects Take Notice

J. Kenneth Leap's exhibition in the atrium of the Doering Center at Bryn Athyn College has been extended after college officials discovered that the stained glass panels hanging in the windows were having a positive effect on local wildlife. Apparently migrating songbirds were embarrassingly offing themselves in record numbers on the plate glass windows of the LEED Certified Green Building. Perhaps this is another reason architects might want to revisit the question: 'Is stained glass relevant in contemporary architecture?"
