When it comes to having a quiet and relaxing place to retreat from it all, it's hard to imagine anywhere more ideally suited to unwinding than the Victor Meditation Hut by architect Jeffrey Poss.

Build over a quiet pond at the edge of a lake in Illinois, the Victor Meditation Hut is designed to coexist peacefully and unobtrusively with its natural surroundings while also providing an unparalleled space for reflection and quiet.

Implications - This hut is designed with biomimicry in mind, meaning that it exists within nature, but also looks similar to an insect or a bird. This reflects how designers are mocking nature and animals in order to create more effective mechanisms to not simply control nature, but live with it, side by side, culminating in a reciprocal relationship.
