Like a metal arbor in a garden, this architectural prototype by Michael Jantzen is designed to be situated in a natural setting. But the Metallic Arbor takes a creative approach to traditional garden framework. Made of forty 10-ft-tall aluminum poles, this design provides a more enclosed atmosphere for whoever enters it. The poles are finished off with vine-like tangles atop the structure, delivering an ambient experience for those within and outside of the arbor.

The arbor has a circular base made of granite for a perfectly polished look. Even though the structure looks tangled, the smooth texture of the tubular vines are overall sleek. The poles are also made with internal lights that illuminate at night time, providing a whimsical place for the public to enjoy. Stats for Vine-Resembling Rest Stations Trending: Older & Mild
