US artist and sculptor Robert Morris recently unveiled a fantastic Glass Labyrinth at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas city. Shaped like a triangle and made entirely from giant panes of glass, Morris' labyrinth is no less perplexing than ancient designs made from stone or hedges.
Morris’ glass labyrinth  is made from inch-thick glass panes, which are topped with bronze  rails and built into a base of concrete paving stones. Measuring 7 feet high, this dynamic see-through structure is shaped like a triangle instead of the more familiar circular and rectangular shapes.
Unlike traditional labyrinths , this transparent piece allows visitors to see each other and the landscape, while wandering around. The aim is to reach the center and then find a way out of the triangular form. Elegant, modern and unique, this stunning glazed piece was designed for people to experience, explore and enjoy.
