Transom Windows
Williams Building, Maine Dept. of Conservation, Augusta ME
2007

In 2007 I did 25 transom windows for the Williams Building at the Maine Dept. of Conservation in Augusta, ME. The building site is the renovated former Augusta Mental Health Institute. The transoms were part of the original architecture.

The panels are each 15"x36"x1/2". They are installed above the doors to the offices in the Dept. of Geology and the Dept. of Natural Areas and Land Use.

I did a lot of research for this project, and worked closely with the people who work for the Dept. of Conservation. The imagery includes historic lithographs showing geologists at work, maps, charts and diagrams, original Henry David Thoreau manuscripts from his Maine Journals (courtesy of the Pierpont Morgan Library), fossils, flora and fauna, and a wide range of other material.

These panels add color and light throughout the corridors. They are also viewed from inside each office, greatly enhancing the work environment. The panels were designed as both part of the larger overall installation, and also to be enjoyed one at a time.

The total cost for the project was $33,000.
