When it reaches 5 or so pages of nominations... which, judging by the current rate, should be around 2040 A.D.

Well, i don't know if it counts, But Palais des Congrès de Montréal, Montreal, Québec, is, i tihnk, one of the most beautiful glass/cladding work in the world of architecture. It is beautiful, colorful, original, and quite unique!

Here, cheque some pictures out!

Since we are allowed to name only three buildings I hurry to nominate the MosFilm tower in Moscow so that those who like it could safe their voices for ir.
I'm sure this outstanding cladding will be finished before the thread is closed Besides, I didn't find the rule that prohibits to nominate u/c buildings...

MosFilm Complex consists of 2 towers - 203 m and 131 m

I'd also like to nominate the Montreal building ChrisDVD mentioned. The Palais des Congres' patchwork of coloured glass works very well:
