New creative structures at the Botanical Garden

Check out these beautiful butterfly and caterpillar volumetric structures designed by the architectural studio Interior137 Architects for the Botanical Garden of Medellín, Joaquín Antonio Uribe. 

These two large-scale structures will welcome visitors to the new butterfly garden at the Botanical Garden. 

The shapes are made of a self-supporting metal structure. The idea is for the structures to work as large containers to grow plants and become covered by vegetation with the shapes of a butterfly and caterpillar.

Architects Ana María Bustamante and David Vanegas used Rhino in the design process to visualize the sculptures in 3-D and for the development of the construction plans.
