Othello’s Jazz Club
The entrance consists of a door and sidelites made of beveled glass which has been laminated on the exterior of tempered, sandblasted glass. These exterior bevels create a shimmering appearance due to the reflective quality of the glass. The facets of the bevels distort the images of the passing cars and pedestrians, creating a dynamic and kinetic scene for patrons of the club. The composition was developed from a passage of music by the jazz saxophonist, Charlie Parker.
