Bik Van der Pol recently submitted this fantastic design for a butterfly sanctuary exhibit to the MACRO museum in Rome.

Built in order to bring visitors closer to one of nature's most delicate beauties, the exhibit is a brightly lit cube space which houses dozens of different butterflies. What is most interesting about the work of Bik Van der Pol is that it puts nature on the same pedestal as inanimate works of art -- a fitting but rare juxtaposition that is definitely worthy of further exploration.
