Vaulot Dyevre Create 'Insectopia' Modern Shelter For Bugs

There’s no avoiding insects wherever you may be in the world, and while bird houses, feeders and the like are in no shortage– it had designers Vaulot & Dyevre asking, what about the bugs?

In an effort to promote biodiversity in urban areas, “Insectopia” was created and installed in Paris. Ultimately, it is a tree trunk with hundreds of wood blocks individually crafted and grouped together to create a type of hotel for bugs. Each block is different in size but all have the same red pitched roof and hollowed out circular opening. Openings vary in diameter, and each wooden piece is mounted at a different height– with most ending up in a large grouping at the pinnacle of the trunk.
