Student designers turn to Mother Nature to create a unique and functional structure.

Students at the School of Architecture Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany, looked to the natural world when it came to designing a functional outdoor structure. The Bowooss is a pop-up pavilion that is covered in large holes and the perforated design resembles an oval-shaped beehive or a bug's shell.

The Bowooss allows natural light to stream in from every angle, and is not only lightweight, but durable. The unique structure is being tested on campus for students to relax in, and even had swinging hammocks up inside.
