Deep in the Estonian woods, a large-scale acoustic installation exists on the forest floor, amplifying the magical sounds that abound in the serene setting.

Built by a group of interior architecture students, the huge wooden megaphones capture and rebound the twitters, howls, and coos of the forest, allowing passerby’s to feel more at one with the land.

As Bored Panda shares,  the king-size megaphones blend contemporary architectural space with wilderness and are accessible to hikers and nature lovers for free.

The objects were placed at such a distance and angle that the sound feed from all the three directions creates a delicate unique sound at the very centre.

Amazingly, the megaphones can also be used as a sitting and resting area or even as a stage. Birgit Õigus authored the idea, and the group was instructed by designers Tõnis Kalve, Ahti Grünberg and architecture office b210.

Take a look at the incredible photos of the installation below:
