This impressive and colorful greenhouse design is made out of panels of caramelized sugar. The greenhouse’s designer is artist William Lamson, who made this sugary solarium resemble a stunning chapel.

The sugary panels used to build this gorgeous greenhouse are each a different color, creating a kind of stained glass window effect. This adds an element of beauty to this already intriguing art project. 

Currently there are a few types of citrus trees being grown in this unusual greenhouse, so it’s actually a fully functional work of art. The way the light shines through this hillside greenhouse is beautiful.

It’s interesting to think about these panels being made from caramelized sugar. Who knew that this sweet baking ingredient could be used to construct a stained glass structure?
