The Recycled Pellet Pavilion by Avatar Architettura is an astonishing piece of architecture. Italian firm Avatar Architettura is notorious for transforming recycled wood pellets into bedazzling pieces of art. This 100 square-foot structure, assembled with diamond-shaped pallets, is held together by custom-made joints. There’s an opaque roof while transparent PVC is wrapped around the structure, allowing people to gaze through.

This giant beehive-like pavilion is eco-friendly and designed as a temporary art installation for the Villa Romana at the German Institute of Culture in Florence. The recycled Pellet Pavilion by Avatar Architettura is ideal for art exhibitions as the structure itself is a standing piece of artwork. Taking only four days to assemble, this pavilion was designed to be easily erected and taken down as fast as it went up.
