A Real Tree House.

450_treehouse.jpg

This house is not to be built, it’s to be grown! Architects Mitchell Joachim and Javier Arbona and environmental engineer Lara Greden designed this “tree house” to be both eco-friendly and alive. Trees are planted and trained to grow in the shape of the finished home. The interior walls are made of clay and plaster, and will look like a normal house. http://www.popsci.com/popsci/whatsnew/0cb1ec816bc3e010vgnvcm1000004eecbccdrcrd.html -via Look at This

As I've seen pointed out elsewhere, this appears uncomfortably similar to visionary artist/engineer Paul Laffoley's concept for a "plant house," right down to the form of the structure, albeit somewhat more traditional to what people think of when they think of a house. I hope if these catch on he'll get the credit he's due and some others of his ideas are given consideration.
