Check Out This Rad Dome Housing Italian Agriculture Products

This pavilion is titled 'Love It' and that's how we feel about its unique exposed structure; it's something between sci-fi architecture and mid-century modern. Designed by Italian architect Benedetta Tagliabue for the Italian agricultural organization Copagri to show their wares at the Milan Expo 2015, the pavilion's two domes consist of thick spruce segments joined by steel plates. The interior is enclosed with clear plastic sheets that produce extraordinary reflections by night. According to the architect, the pavilion's shape was inspired by Italy's numerous church domes—so it's no surprise that both structures are crowned with a branching wooden 'cupolas.'
