The recently opened Darwin Centre is the new addition to the Natural History Museum in London, designed by the fabulous Danish architects C.F. Møller. It houses the museum’s collection of 17 million insects and 3 million plants, as well as working laboratories for 220 scientists from all over the world. The design is in the form of a huge organic cocoon, enclosed in a glass covering. The shape is a beautiful metaphor for the protection of these natural treasures.
