Semi-Permanent Wood Nest Balanced In A Tree

Czech architect Jan Tyrpekl created an experimental structure called The Nest in Strančice, his hometown. No joints, ropes, tapes, or nails were used to support the 80-kilogram creation. The Nest is currently used as a play structure for local children, and can bear a loading capacity of 250 kilograms, or roughly three adults.
