Giant Wooden Cocoon Encourages Forest Exploration [Pics]

Architectural project mimics the beauty of nature to offer a new perspective on everyday surroundings.

Students from London’s Architectural Association have created a giant wooden cocoon that’s suspended in the trees of Hooke Park in Dorset, England. The cocoon provides a quiet retreat where its visitors can sit under the trees to watch the sunset and observe the nature that surrounds them.

The structure is made from sheets of plywood and a locally milled cedar tree that are set together using a bandaging technique.

The four students who are on the AA Design & Make course told Dezeen,’The Cocoon represents a journey through the forest, inviting and challenging the visitor to anticipate, imagine, explore and discover the natural beauty of the forest from a completely different perspective.’
