Italian architect Peter Pichler aims to combine modern aesthetic and Renaissance architecture with this highly detailed wooden pavilion. The sculptural construction is an impressive instance of assembly as each beam is stacked at a right angle. The design is a temporary installment for Milan Design Week and it is situated in the courtyard of Ca' Granda — a complex that belongs to the University of Milan. Peter Pichler built this incredibly intricate wooden pavilion to showcase how "wood can be used to create a spatial experience akin to Renaissance architecture."

The installation is dubbed 'Future Space.' It communicates its strong understanding of a material use and spatial awareness through three walls that curve inward, forming a pyramid-like enclosure.
