      Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. The windows are made of translucent marble which glows when illuminated but protects the interior from direct sunlight. During the day, the Beinecke Library's walls turn amber if you're inside.

    The Encanto Hotel in Acapulco, Mexico Brilliant. In particular the way the light brings its own warmth to the static material of concrete. Frames the view but also is a great feature in itself.
