Intricate Museum Wall Has Stenciled Skin

Design firm P-06 Atelier collaborated with architect Joo Lus Carrilho da Graa to create a stunning surrounding space for the Pavilion of Knowledge in Lisbon.

The walls also contain the American Standard Code for Information Interchange.

Natural light also jumps into the mix adding even more varying effects.
