The Philosophy and Science Windows

These windows were designed by Keith New (1952-2012) and installed in 1966. They are a part of Douglas Strachan's (1875-1950) 8 light window scheme for the chapel which celebrated the subjects studied at the University of Glasgow. Unfortunately Strachan designed and constructed only 4 out of the 8 windows, before his death, and in this instance left no designs, only the titles of the window, ‘Philosophy and Science’. New’s windows are very different windows to the other lights in this scheme, but they are nevertheless sympathetic to both the architecture of the building and the style of the other windows.
