Chinese studio C.DD took their love for their hometown of Foshan, China and created a tiny shelter that lights up like a lantern at night. Built for Guangzhou Design Week , the Origin of Everything is a perforated steel cube that features the Chinese character for “Hui,” which means “return to the origin.” C.DD’s art installation was developed for an event that asked designers to submit a small-scale representation of a city. Designers HE Xiao-Ping and LI Xing-Lin developed the cubic building to express their hometown’s compact, yet dynamic nature. Related: Handmade MPavilion will be the largest bamboo structure ever built in Australia A wall of bamboo rods froms a small rectangular zone in the center of the steel cube. Although at first glance the small 9-square-meter installation may look like a simple design, when looking at the cross section from above, the two independent squares created by the bamboo wall and exterior wall form the Chinese character “Hui.” Once on the inside, visitors are encouraged to follow the building’s narrow path, which the architects describe as “the road for the journey.” The path winds around the four walls of the cube, leading guests to walk the path alone while background music corresponds to flashing lights. On the exterior, the cube projects a series of maps of Foshan, China through perforated spaces on the steel facade. These holes provide the interior of the tiny space with ventilation and natural light . Via Sunshine PR Photography by OUYANG Yun

Nature is amazing in its ability to defend and repair itself when harmed. A new study shows willow trees are able to turn on and off components of their DNA when planted in contaminated soil, strengthening their defenses against heavy metals and other threats. Researchers believe this mechanism could be used to rehabilitate other corners of the Earth soiled by pollution.
