British architect Amanda Levete created this beautifully innovative pavilion with a paper-thin canopy made of carbon fiber.

The idea was to create a petal-like canopy that provides guests with the same experience as being in a forest. The paper-thin canopy is designed to grow like real petals from stems that physically move when the wind blows. Each translucent petal is equipped with glowing LED lights to illuminate the canopy at night. Speakers built into the petals provide whimsical music to enhance the entire experience.

The design concept was risky due to the low amount of structural material, yet this architect made it possible. The modernized aesthetic of this garden and forest-inspired pavilion present a unique experience for guests.
