Specially tinted solar panels have been used as an architectural feature for Copenhagen's new International School.

The 1,200 panels cover most of the building and generate more than half of the school's energy needs. By an ingenious process, the panels have been tinted a sea green colour so the building blends into its waterfront location. Magic.
