Admire the East Window at St Martin-in-the-Fields

Installed as part of the £36 million refurbishment project which took place at St Martin-in-the-Fields from 2005 to 2008, Shirazeh Houshiary and Pip Horne's East Window is beautiful in its apparent initial simplicity, made of etched blown clear glass and similarly monochromatic peened stainless steel.

One aspect of the brief was that the window should "successfully animate the light", and it certainly achieves that, whilst maintaining the interest of the viewer with its other-worldly curves.
