MILAN, Italy - Italian architect Peter Pichler's intricate pavilion features over 1,600 wooden beams. 
 
The structure, named Future Space, is only temporary - set in an Italian courtyard for the Milan design week. Pichler's goal for the design was to show how wood can be used to create a spatial experience akin to Renaissance architecture.
 
The structure is formed of 1,600 pieces of wood, stacked and rotated to form three separate wings of changing heights. Each wall features a lattice of standard wooden beams, stacked at right angles to each other. The beams vary in length and also decrease in size towards the top. A skylight is featured in the center.
