#66 Scorpion Treehouse

Project Data

Tree:  Acacia auriculiformis, Peltophorum peltophorus

Date: October-December 2018

 

The Scorpion Treehouse was a completely new manimalistic challenge. How to build a treehouse on just a single post that spans between two trees but barely big enough to hold half a post each? In isolation on top of the canyon, in a rugged landscape called 'Hermitage', the staircase is made to pivot upwards like the tail of a scorpion. Compact and venomous, the Scorpion Treehouse is also inspired by Vinni's sunsign making it his first overnight accommodation on this plot dedicated to re-forest degraded landscapes.
