This Gold-Covered Building Is Where All the Butterflies Live

New, 1 comment

This glass building covered by a flowing golden roof on Noor Island in the United Arab Emirates is pretty magical even before you find out that it is called Butterfly Pavilion and it houses more than 500 species of butterflies. The roof is made of 4,000 golden aluminum leaves, and the butterflies are made of jointed legs, antennae, compound eyes, and an exoskeleton.
