The Glass Cloud Collection features the unique glass window design of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, known as the Cloud. The design was conceptualized by architect Antoine Predock. Sheets of glass envelop the southwest side of the building, making the Cloud one of the most enthralling and memorable aspects of the CMHR’s architecture. The windows’ shape resembles the folded wings of a dove, the symbol of peace.
The Cloud is comprised of 1,669 panes of glass and covers 5,000 square metres. The glass was chosen for its environmental benefits; it contains a frit pattern to keep the building cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The Cloud provides natural light to the upper levels of the building and reflects the surrounding prairie landscape.
