In recent years we’ve seen large mosaics of bird nests, apartment buildings for birds, and even eco-friendly prefab houses for pets. But what about bugs? The designers at Vaulout & Dyèvre turned their gaze to Earth's smallest creatures with Insectopia, a collection of art installations in the 13th arrondissement of Paris that look like dense condo developments for insects.
Intricate conglomerates of small wooden dwellings populate the parks of the 13th arrondissement in Paris.
The installations look like tiny futuristic looking hotels for insects.
The structures resemble both trees and densely populated cities.
Bug buildings are mounted on top of each other, creating a small universe inhabited by different species of insects.
The artists’ intention was to create a universe which is in constant motion.
It should arouse curiosity and engage with the imagination of passers-by.
