The 77 Duke Chapel windows were designed and constructed over a three-year period by 15 artists and craftsmen. They are constructed from over one million pieces of glass, imported from England, France, and Belgium and varying in thickness between 1/8 and 3/16 inch. The largest window measures 17.5 by 38 feet, and the smallest measures just 14 by 20 inches.
