Decorative Glass Panels

I've always adored this material.

It's flexible, versatile, fragile, can have any possible colours, can be transparent and opaque, cold and warm, reflective, futuristic and ofcourse beautiful. The GLASS. It's a parabola of water. The solid water in it's countless forms and variations. A truesy fascinating building/ art material for the future.

How monotone and boring are most of the office buildings, or massive regular plane facades cover with tons of glass pannels with no spirit, soul or creational nerve. I present a possible design for a Public Bulding with coloured glass pannels using one of my digital graphic works "Marylin Monroe, the Dusk/Symbol Variation". I used a skyscraper on purpose. The skyscrapers are a symbol of industrialization and developement era, and the decorative IMAGE used, as a specific continuation, the beauty symbol of the XX-th century - Marylin Monroe.
