This is the second time the centre has hosted the International Symposium in Architectural Glass, which includes traditional lectures with panel discussions, workshops demonstrations and informal networking opportunities.
The Symposium - 'Working with light as a means of interaction between space and mind' - will run for two days (May 17/May 18).
It has been organised with the help of the National Glass Centre-based Institute for International Research in Glass (IIRG), co-ordinated by Professor Sylva Petrova, of the University of Sunderland.
The emphasis of this event is how flat glass is used three dimensionally in space and as a creative means of expression. This will explore both the theoretical and practical aspects of this process: idea exploration, design development, use of new technologies, the possibilities of technical restrictions and the multi-disciplinary approach prevalent in many projects.
Guest speakers will include:
