Nobody ever talks about what nature reserves of the future will look like — but thanks to South Korea’s stunning new plans, we now have a pretty good idea.

The National Ecological Institute of South Korea recently released plans for a $113 million large-scale nature reserve, complete with an gorgeous series of eco domes, an education center, and an environmental think-tank.

Each of the domes will be connected and contain their own greenhouse. Since this is the future we’re talking about, they’ll also be able to detect external climate conditions and make the appropriate adjustments inside. According to Inhabitat, the Ecorium Project will cover 33,000 sq meters and include a large wild plant area and a wetland reserve.

    We like this. It’s so sculptural. A lush green environment within a lush green environment.
