The design of the new glass exhibition in the premises of Pardubice castle comes from and combines the specific collection of objects of the East Bohemia Museum, the spaces into which the exhibition is designed and the concept of the City of Glass. A City such where visitors find themselves surrounded by glass objects; where appear shadows, reflections, or rays upon backgrounds from pure white to light grey— yet also neon, mirroring pools, illuminated skies; where visitors feel as if passing through glass, they recognize and understand the object of glass, letting themselves be consumed, taken in.

The exhibition consists of several types of objects on which the individual exhibits are exhibited.
In both rooms there are vertical spatial elements, "columns", anchored to both the floor and the ceiling. Each column with a floor plan of a square of 1400 mm x 1400 mm consists of vertical bar elements (Jäckel profiles) and horizontal elements (frames made of Jäckel profiles), with sheet metal plates. The columns also contain vertical plate elements separating the hinged glass exhibits.
Another significant element of the exhibition is the object "passage”, where approximately 50 smaller art exhibits are placed in single-view showcases. In the interior of the passage, the exhibits are placed on both sides in two rows and illuminated by spotlights.
An important element is the illumination of the exhibits by reflectors located on the ramps under the ceiling and on the construction of the columns.
