Archi-temporal Fabrication

Originally uploaded by brucesflickr.
Seeing the brick/mold in this picture of Bruce's got me thinking. What if buildings and/or monuments incorporated some sort of second, environment-driven structural element?

...Think of large caverns with stalactites and stalagmites formed by millenia of mineral-rich drips of water.

...Or the ultra-slow flow and crystalization of man-made glass.

...Or a field of petrified wood.

As one volume errodes and decays, a secondary structure could be revealed, possibly even reinforced as time goes by.
