Admit it. You’ve always wanted to live in a tree house. You wanted to be like Bart Simpson, living in a tree, without a care in the world, and a slightly yellow palette. One man is living the dream. And I am insanely jealous.
Think of how much better the world would be if we all lived in trees. If we all would dance on the canopies and share our things with squirrels. Think of how much better our living spaces would be if we could just drop the things we don’t want out of a window, possibly onto passing animals that you don’t care for. All in all, it sounds like a fantasy David the Gnome would be proud of. Admittedly, tree houses have problems. Such as forest fires, and having Sonny Bono’s ghost slam into them repeatedly. But goddamn, modern architecture is growing leaps and bounds.
The structure, designed by architect Robert Harvey Oshatz, is a modern marvel. Filled with enough glass and beautiful views to make St. Paul’s cathedral jealous, it’s an architectural marvel that took seven years to complete. It’s totally beautiful. Architecture Frank Lloyd Wright would be proud. I’ll shut the hell up so you can look at the pictures, which you can find here.
