When it comes to the outdoors, architects are always looking for a way to create a more aesthetically pleasing surrounding for the public and Gernot Riether knows this all too well. The 'Underwood Pavilion' was constructed in Indiana in attempts to deliver more beauty to public spaces. The structure is composed of 56 3D tensegrity modules. Each module is covered in Elsatan, a fabric that will make the hottest of summer days seem cool and breezy. At night, the structure is lit up, allowing light to bounce off of the spherical structure and loom through the fabric to create a dreamy eye-catching pavilion.

Currently, the pavilion created by Gernot Riether is traveling throughout the Midwest. If this doesn't make you want to go outside,for at least an Instagram photo, what else will?
