Construction is underway for the Zhejiang Gate Towers, a pair of glimmering skyscrapers being built in Hangzhou, China.
But in addition to being aesthetically breathtaking, the towers will also feature environmentally friendly elements.
Scroll down for a closer look at the project:
The buildings will be composed of glass of various colours and shades that will refract light differently. The glass will create a shimmering effect where the building looks a different colour based on where you're standing.
But the glass is also a key component in making the towers environmentally friendly by reducing glare and solar heat gain.
The firm behind the project, the Laboratory for Visionary Architecture (LAVA), is aiming to LEED Gold certification -- the second highest rating given to environmentally friendly buildings.
LAVA is also reducing the material needed to build the towers by constructing them with eight 'super columns.'
Using the super columns reduces the concrete needed by 30% compared to traditional schemes.
