There are certain architectural wonders that are fragile, but when it comes to making a building that looks like it could shatter with a pin drop, the Hierve Diseneria Hesiodo building wins first prize.

The building is surrounded by blown glass spheres -- 7,723 to be precise. The structure is located in Mexico City, so perhaps there is less chance of hail storms and other potentially hazardous elements that could bring down this fragile piece of work. Nevertheless, the Hierve Diseneria Hesiodo house looks stunning with its thousands of green glass spheres. Let's just hope that these balls of wonder are actually secure.

Implications - Many individuals feel the need to stand out in contemporary society, as a large majority of products are held by millions of people. Companies would be wise to take risks and make commodities that challenge the status quo and offer daring alternatives for the individualistic consumer.
