It’s hard to decide which are the most spectacular, with a glass pane above a barbed wire fence, a window over the road, a large glass window over a park, or even a glass door at the top of a building.
Some of these windows are in the top 10, while others have been the subject of a great deal of controversy.
But some of them are worth seeing, and they can be found all over Melbourne’s suburbs, including some that you might not expect to see such beautiful glass.
Here are the 10 best glass windows of Melbourne, in order.
A.F. Smith’s “The Glass”A. F. Smith was the first Australian architect to take the concept of glass as seriously as it was his profession.
He also pioneered the practice of glass-filling, in which large quantities of glass are mixed in small quantities of water to create a liquid.
In 1896, the Sydney Morning Herald described his design as “a huge open-air gallery of glass that was a great success.”
“Glass, I would say, was not yet a very desirable quality.
The most desirable quality was glass, and the glass that could be made to look good was of very high quality,” he wrote in his diary.”
But that glass, which was so highly prized, had a very strong tendency to be shattered.
And I must tell you that I do not think it would have been very desirable if I had not found this glass and made it myself.
And then I had a chance to take a glass plate and cut out a small piece of glass, then I put that glass on the wall and cut another piece out of it, and then I made another glass plate out of this and so on and so forth.”
His work was described by the Times of London as “the most remarkable and striking thing I have ever seen.”
He later made a statement in his autobiography that he made the glass “to express the feelings of the artist, the emotions of the spectator.”
“It has been my object in the making of this work to make the glass to express my feelings and to express the emotions,” he said.
“It has also been my aim to give an impression of the beauty of the place where it is built.”
While it may have taken a great many hours to make this glass, it has been noted in a book by Australian artist, Mark Kurlansky, that it is actually made of more than two hundred and twenty-five pieces of glass.

Alfred Dore’s “A Room With a View”Alfredo Dore was an Italian architect and architect-in-residence at the Royal Institute of Technology in London.
He designed the first skyscraper, the Bowering Building, and built the first modern office building, the Euston House.
Dore designed the glass window in his 1937 book, The Glass Gallery, which is considered to be his most important contribution to glass architecture.
It was this glass window that he created for the Battersea Power Station.

Ariel Schulze’s “Glass and Ashes”This Victorian glass window was designed to be an extension of the London Underground.
The glass on top of the glass pane was made of two halves, which were made of a mix of glass and ash, which made it easy to see the glass as it fell.
The original glass window on the right was constructed in 1893 and the one on the left was in 1912.
Schulze was a pioneer in the use of glass in architecture, designing glasshouses in England in the 1800s.
His glass windows have become iconic in the history of Melbourne and, although they have only been on the top floor of the Bowersy for the past few years, they have still become a popular tourist attraction.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Schulz said that the glass was his inspiration for his design, and that it was also his intention to “create a space where the glass can grow and change.”
“I thought it would be very interesting to create something that would make it possible to see through it,” he told the paper.
“I was inspired by the fact that I wanted the glass not only to be as durable as glass, but to also be able to change colour.”
Schulz later said that “the glass itself is what makes it a beautiful object.”
“When it gets smashed, it will break.
But it will also give off the same light as glass.”
