The ultimate tree house? Design students build bizarre cocoon above the forest floor


At first glance it looks as though a giant insect has made a nest in these trees.

But this fascinating structure is the result of students challenged to make a shelter using forest  materials.

Budding designers Hugo Urrutia, Abdullah Omar Asghar Khan and Karjvit Rirermvanich spent five weeks planning, building and installing their creation.

The futuristic cocoon weaves between trees in Hooke Park near Beaminster, Dorset, suspended two metres above the forest floor by hemp ropes.
