The Shanghai Expo 2010 is producing some astonishing architectural feats like the Monaco pavilion. Designed by Naço Architecture, the building's exterior looks like it is made of tuberous, rippling aquariums.

The comparison is not entirely incorrect as horizontal, water-filled troughs are located underneath each layer. Lit by LEDs and then reflected into the glass surface, the water produces the undulating surface. The Monaco pavilion isn't just pretty, it's also eco-friendly, as it is run on solar power.
