Glass Labyrinth is a triangular and three-dimensional form. A single opening serves as both the entry and exit point. Structural and transparent glass walls are arranged such that a visitor is led toward the central triangular space and returns via the same route.
This path is not “spiral-like” nor is it a puzzling maze. Instead, glass panels block continuous flow, requiring the visitor to shift direction but always lead to the center and back to a safe exit. The glass panels are capped by protective inverted, U-shaped metal. A “door” that can be locked safeguards the entrance. Security cameras will provide additional safeguard.
