The Venice Biennale of Architecture kicked off last week in the majestic Italian city. The six-month long event brings together top architects and designers from around the world to share new projects and themes.

Among the countries hosting an exhibit for the duration of the event is Israel. Titled LifeObject, it will feature the work and research of world-renowned Israeli architects, scientists and chemists (including Noble Prize Winning chemist Dan Shechtman) and will center around a massive 16-meter-long "bird's nest" (pictured) composed of synthetic and natural materials that will essentially react to the body heat and movements of each viewer.
