Stuebner Residence -- hallway

This hallway links the main public portion of the house to the series of bedrooms that extend out into the landscape in a horizontal gesture. When I walked through this space, I nearly stopped breathing. The design of the strip of glass blocks with the canted wall and steel column repeats Armstrong's design of the hallway in the Shanley Building of 1935.
