Vestige of the Vox Populi #106
This is really very cool, in form and function-- especially in a time when the "go Green" movement is popular. Like something out of science fiction, tree houses that actually incorporate and become one with the tree... as opposed to simply sticking a house in a tree. This is an awesome demonstration of a harmonious mix possible between Man and Mother Nature. Don`t cut down a tree to build a house. Build the house around the tree, and make it part of the house.
Now let`s take that concept even further. You`ve seen how the shape of trees can be molded according to the way it grows around objects in its path?
Well, how about shaping the trees deliberately into a framework for a house?
