Our planet has always been under construction. From tiny organisms that 3.5 billion years ago created mushroom-like towers along marine shorelines, to the present day, where all sorts of animal architects are at work; fish, spiders, termites, ants, bees, birds, mammals and amphibians of all varieties, are building artefacts with ingenuity rivalling our own architects.
Many of these creatures create shelters and nests in a breathtaking diversity of shape, size and colour. This one-hour film illustrates some of the wonders of architecture found in the natural world. From the very small creatures to the large, the animal kingdom has produced many a masterpiece.
