Woods of Net by Tezuka Architects

I know there is winter, it is cold and a lot of preparations before Christmas (I did'n even started yet ;-) …but when I saw this amazing project I just couldn't resist not to share it with you! So much fun! So much beauty! This project was made by Tezuka Architecs and got an International Architecture Awards for The Best Global Design 2010. 
" It is a permanent pavilion for a net artist, Toshiko Horiuchi Macadam. The artist knitted the net entirely by hands, which is designed for children to crow in, roll around, and jump on the net. (…) We wanted to design a space as soft as the forest where the boundary between outside and inside disappears. The space attracts people like campfire. The children play inside of the net just as fire and parents sit around and lay on the woods. "
