Hello Wood‘s Butterfly House covers an area of 300 square meters, and it was built from 20 tons of wood and 9 tons of concrete. The wings are painted with the patterns of the Poplar Admiral, one of Central Europe’s most exotic butterflies. The structure is built to withstand strong winds and it’s designed to accommodate a wide variety of performers – from classical orchestras to acrobats.

Working in collaboration with architect Gabor Zoboki, Hello Wood also built a 16-meter-long installation that forms the word “Budapest”. The installation was placed at Hero’s Square, one of the city’s most emblematic landmarks. Visitors and passers-by can safely sit on the structure, thanks to the anti-slip cover of the wood. The celebration also features six huge red cubes which glow in the dark. The 2.7-meter-high structures are stable enough to be climbed.

Hello Wood recently published an open call for those interested in taking part in similar projects. The deadline for applying to the summer camp is May 16.
