It sure looks like German architect André Broessel loved marbles and bubbles as a boy, since those spheres have found a way into his designs of buildings.

These multipurpose globes act as windows and solar energy captors. The solar globes that he designed — known as the ß.torics system — are weatherproof, fully rotational and can generate energy from moonlight.

This design is a great marriage of functionality, sustainability and winsomeness. Well done, Mr. Broessel.
