Sugar Solarium.

Constructed using 162 window panels made purely of cooked sugar, William Lamson's Solarium, formerly at Storm King Art Centerwas 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.

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