Biographical / Historical

The Metaproject competition was developed by the educator Josh Owen in partnership with an industry sponsor to encourage students to produce design that "is semantically correct, and pragmatically understandable, but also visually powerful, intellectually elegant and timeless." In the case of Metaproject 02, in collaboration with Corning Museum of Glass (CMoG), the students were given the task of creating a product that takes advantage of glass as a primary material.
