Vaulting Arch – Iridescent glass model

A prototype of the glass vaulting arch in 1:25. It is made with a skeleton framework with fragments of iridescent glass to create the color reflections. The vaulting arch is structually and arch but visually looks like a vault with two ends that does not touch the ground, the ends that doesnt touch the ground emphasis the feeling of weightlessness. The fragments and materiality aids creating the effect of non-reality and the lack of gravity.
