Of all the designers that exist in the world, the mother of them all is Mother Nature herself. Sometimes when I see the beauty in the world around us, it takes my breath away. The crazy thing is, as much as we might struggle to create something unique, nature seems to do it effortlessly and with all the patience in the world. For example, check out this tree with four unusual trunks which form an awning and these tree roots that have adapted to the concrete and formed an intricate design.
This beautiful leafy tunnel for trains and lovers in a small town near Kleven in the Ukraine is another great example. It’s hidden deep in the forest, only to be discovered by the ultimate adventurer who might explore that far into the wilderness. Can you imagine taking a walk and then stumbling upon this? The tunnel is really long (1.8 miles), and although there are train tracks inside of it, it also looks like a very romantic place to take an afternoon walk.
Just like with the example I already showed you of the tree that adapted to the concrete, this is how nature adapted to that particular train tunnel. I wonder how long it took for this to happen to the man-made structure underneath all this greenery. Nature seems to be very forgiving, and it finds a way to keep moving forward even when we intrude. This is almost too pretty to describe in words, and if I’m ever near that part of the world, I definitely want to see this in person.
