    does anyone know if sunlight coming in through coloured glass vs clear glass would affect the plants differently?

    It’s very Piet Mondrian-ny

    This is by the artist Tom Fruin. I don’t believe it’s actually stained glass but really plexiglass, so pretty durable!

    This is artist Tom Fruin's work. He's got another one of these in Dumbo just behind Empire Stores by Jane's Carousel - that one is made of colored plexiglas. He also builds these into water towers all around New York - you can see a few of them from the Brooklyn Queens Expressway.

    If you live in the NYC area I suggest you visit this ASAP - the North Brooklyn Farms are going to be demolished in the next year or so because of a real estate development. They are being replaced with a concrete paver pavilion with a fountain.

    This is in Williamsburg along the water near Domino Park. On Kent Avenue.

    the stain glass water tower overlooking the BQE (I assume by the same artist) is also super pretty.

    I believe the preferred nomenclature is "African-American greenhouse".

  • GoHomeWithBonnieJean

    I wonder if the stained glass's light filtering quality affects the plants in any way.

  • agustincoquet

    this looks like if Mondrian would've done it

    Isn't this the place where gnomeo an juliet met tue flamingo guy?

  • _Bruin_

    When you forget that by filtering out blue light you're fucking with the plant's ability to tell what time of day it is.

    The stained glass window in my childhood church looked like this. I didn’t even know that stained glass could have pictures in it until much later!
