Tiivistelmä

The history of glass architecture has been animated by a ‘dream’, stimulated by the particular interaction properties of this material with light. The article approaches to the genesis of that dream and its first manifestations, in the form of legends about fantastic glass buildings, transcribed in sacred or literary texts. It refers also to the architectures in which it has been materialized and some of the architects it has inspired. We conclude that the survival of this dream in time is due to the capacity granted to glass as a way to access indistinctly to ‘anagogies’ (elevation and alienation of the soul by the contemplation of ‘divine’ things), whether religious or secular.
