Outstanding Innovation Creates Amazing Glass Buildings

Philip Johnson said, “Architecture is the art of how to waste space.” And what better way to do it than by using glass! In a world where the cost of building materials, labour and design processes can hinder creativity, it’s a wonder how these amazing structures are made. However, when it comes to glass – one of the most beautiful, extravagant, and perhaps underrated materials – inspiration appears to flow freely.

Glass buildings are some of the beautiful structures in the world. Each is a unique and functional work of art. Here is a list of amazing glass buildings located around the world.
