Designer: We didn't want something to just blend in with the Minster

The designer responsible for putting a contemporary metal orb inside York Minster to display a selection of newly restored glass panels from the Great East Window says he deliberately didn't want anything which would just blend in with the gothic architecture.

Paul Lee says he was determined to install a structure which would create a sense of intrigue and have a jewel-like quality.
