Glass house

You know what they say about glass houses. This was actually a public art installation in Palo Alto, Calif., but the point stands: glass can be recycled as a building material, and you don't need to stop with wine bottles as an architectural accent. (But please: Don't drink all that wine yourself. Source material from winery tasting rooms, restaurants, and bars!)
