Inhabitat » VIDEO: Grow A Treehouse with TeReForm

This idea expands on the notion of architecture that you can grow.

Everything about it is very cool. But what strikes me is that in an effort to make the concept seem real, and a rational architectural step, they just never talk about it being cool. They’ve taken the idea of a treehouse and sterilized it of the notion of play and fun.

    That’s funny… I first heard about this project in a magazine (probably something like Ranger Rick) that my nine-year-old received as a gift. That write-up was almost completely about how cool this concept was!

    Well, I’m glad Ranger Rick gets it. Perhaps I’ll have to include that in my regular literature reviews:)
