The Eureka Pavilion is set to grace the Chelsea Flower Show this year on the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London, England. Inspired by the capillaries and cellular structure of plants, it was designed to showcase the show's dedication towards science.

Designed by engineer Buro Happold and London architect firm NEX Architecture, this display features a stunning shape, with contributions by landscape architect Marcus Barnett. The Eureka Pavilion was crafted out of timber with a sheet of glass used as the roof in order to let natural light in. The whole Eureka Pavilion rests on a wooden raft to make portability an easy possibility.

Although the Eureka Pavilion is very organic-looking, I love how it also has a futuristic element in comparison to its surroundings. Stats for Plant-Inspired Gazebos Trending: Older & Chilly
