The fee, supported by the Danish Arts Basis and Knud Højgaards Fond, marks the start of the museum's long-term imaginative and prescient to combine artwork and nature-related tasks on its web site. Made with 3D modeling and CNC expertise, the curvaceous pavilion encompasses a cave-like inside that encourages guests to assemble and reconnect with nature.

Lastly, the roof of the pavilion was made from plywood and polycarbonate, reduce to digital order, folded in place and connected collectively to a customized carpentry impressed leaves. By parametric modeling, the Observatory is optimized for the power and use of supplies.

Measuring almost 19 toes tall, the Observatory options an asymmetrical drop form topped with a south-facing oculus, framing views of the moon and creating extra entry to pure mild. Inside, the arched inside is burdened with gravel soil and consists of an built-in wood bench that seats 25 individuals in addition to a concrete podium.
