This old American proverb has been brought to life by Italian architect Carlo Santambrogio.
This is "Glass Home", and everything, including the furniture, is made entirely out of glass.
Carlo built this house out of a special blue tinted glass that can be heated during the winter.
Thankfully, the see-through house is properly placed in a private wooded area,far away from any neighbors.
I imagine that it would be an amazing experience to wake up in the morning and feel so connected to your natural surroundings.
Now...when is Carlo going to build one of these right in the middle of NYC?
