Check out this work by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson.  He works mostly in the installation medium and this one is no exception.

This piece, known as   Your rainbow panorama (2006-2011) can be found on top of the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark.  Eliasson was chosen by a five panel judge to build this 150 foot long, 3 foot wide circular corridor, which features glass made of all the colors of the rainbow.  The piece is elevated 3.5 meters above the museum’s roof, given breathtaking views of the surrounding terrain.  The artwork cost 60 million Danish kroner to build,  or 10,431,180.00 US dollars by today’s exchange rate.
