España Telefonica Building, Plaça de Catalunya (1992 Barcelona Olympics)


"In collaboration with the Centre del Vidre de Barcelona. A four-sided internally lit tower at the top of the 19th century building in central Barcelona, the headquarters of the Spanish telephone company. Commissioned to celebrate the 1992 Olympiad." – from the 1993 catalogue Brian Clarke: Designs on Architecture. The four windows comprise a total of 484 square feet of mouthblown stained glass, and were fabricated by students at the Centre del Vidre, where Clarke was Visiting Professor. A substantial, related stained glass artwork was also made for the three-light lunette above the historical building's main entrance on Plaça de Catalunya, but was removed sometime after 2010.
