“Kusukusu” The largest treehouse in Japan build around a 300 years old tree

Takashi Kobayashi is the mastermind creator behind Kusukusu, the largest treehouse built around a towering, 300-year-old camphor tree in Atami, Japan. Completed in March 2014, Kusukusu is the result of collaborative work between Kobayashi and Hiroshi Nakamura of NAP Architects for the Risonare Resort.

After 3D-scanning hundreds of points on the tree, the team created a steel trellis that threads throughout the branches, forming a support system that’s both architecturally sound and visually arresting. The most worderful thing is that the self-standing structure doesn’t touch the tree at all, leaving it unharmed and free to grow further.

Perfect Balance Between Nature and Architecture by Dionisio Gonzalez

The Surreal Housing Projects By Dionisio Gonzalez

“Trans-Acciones,” the latest collection of artist Dionisio Gonzales is a set of surreal architectural designs that are not only amazing but equally beautiful. His project’s workplaces, mobile observatories and occasional retreats are balanced excellently.

Gonzales is well known for his architectural visualizations for disaster-prone areas.One cannot take his eyes off from the powerful and vast panoramic sceneries of these imaginary buildings.

All structures are set on pillars of reinforced concrete to support a horizontal structural plane. The composition’s idea is to leave the space at ground level open so it doesn’t corrupt in any way the surrounding environment. It comprises in a way what could be the ultimate equilibrium between nature and architecture.
