The solarium is no longer at Storm King, but I'd still love to visit this summer. Have you been?

Constructed using 162 window panels made purely of cooked sugar, William Lamson's Solarium, formerly at Storm King Art Center, was a greenhouse of sorts inspired by isolated, nature-ensconced sanctuaries - "like a mountain chapel or Thoreau's one-room cabin," says the artist. In addition, he continues, "the design references the architecture of a plant leaf." Sweet.
