The Orb at York Minster was named winner of the ‘Landscape/the Public Realm – including Urban Design’ award at the 2014 York Design Awards. The awards recognise excellence in design and conservation.
The Orb offers a unique opportunity for visitors to see close too some of the world’s most important medieval stained glass. Five pieces of restored stained glass panels are exhibited, with a panel changed monthly so that visitors can follow the restoration work on the Great East Window. In addition to the panels the Orb also contains interactive galleries within the 10m x 3m space.
