Danish architecture studio BIG revealed its design for the Treehotel in Swedish Lapland. Named the Biosphere treehouse, the suspended hotel room is covered with 350 birdhouses in a bid to increase local bird populations.
The hotel room features large windows for observing birds and the surrounding forest, creating an interesting experience for guests.
But readers aren’t convinced by its practicality. “BIG really needs to get small,” wrote one.
