This Artificial Marble Makes for Real Beauty

If you're designing a new structure in an area that requires all new buildings have the appearance of a stone facade, but you want to build something different, what do you do? If you're Wiel Aerts Architects, you just make up your own building material that looks like marble but is made from glass.

At least, that's what they did when they designed the Allianz Headquarters. The beautiful marble above is actually glass with multiple layers of white and black dots in it. As if that weren't cool enough, the unique "marble" ends up appearing to be different colors in different lights -as you can see in the images.
