GlasPro representatives from SpecReps will be at SOURCED AUSTIN to show you our latest glass product lines.
GlasPro was selected by Giroux Glass to fabricate glass for the new Martin Luther King Jr. light rail station’s pavilion entryway. Martin Luther King Jr. station is an underground station on the new K Line of the Los Angeles Metro Rail system. Slated to open in November 2022, the station is located underneath Crenshaw Boulevard at its intersection with Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, after which the station is named.
GlasPro worked with artist Mara Lonner to help her create artwork titled Leimert Park Landscape, integrated into the glass walls of the pavilion entryway. The translucent glass panels, fabricated by GlasPro, catch the sunlight as it shines through images of familiar local landmarks that share histories through architecture, landscaping, and signs.
Ms. Lonner drew inspiration and imagery from local stories told by neighbors and community members. Japanese-influenced landscaping, weathervanes, stained-glass windows, sculpted trees, and the architectural ornamentation from local residences are rendered in overlapping translucent colored glass layers. The artwork also includes iconic signage and references to neighborhood locations that hold personal and historical significance.
