Holiday in a Bird’s Nest
Located in Harads, Sweden, the Treehotel shows how modern design can interact beautifully with its natural surroundings. This hotel offers six environmentally friendly unique guestrooms built into the woods and suspended above the ground. One of them is the Bird’s Nest room, designed to mimic a bird’s nest indeed.
Forward to Nature
Virtual worlds, printed food, living cities, wild robots – we’re so surrounded by technology that it’s becoming our next nature. How can we live in harmony with it? The Next Nature Network is a 21st century nature organization that wants to go forward – not back – to nature. We stir debate, create events, exhibitions, publications and products that bring biology and technology into balance. Because ultimately, we may not just have to save the pandas but the people too. Will you join us?
Hunger Games for Robots

How would you feel if robots inherited ethical complications of existence? This is the question that Berlin-based audiovisual artist Martin Reiche seeks to answer, by pitting robots against each other in a deadly fight for resources.
