A PEACEFUL PHANTOM IN THE TREETOP

THIS TREEHOUSE REVEALS A SAD BUT TRUE REALITY OF THE MODERN WORLD

 When we think of treehouses, usually what comes to mind are houses made of wood. This treehouse, however, is almost entirely out of perfectly transparent glass. This project aims to shed light on an issue in our technology-focused world.

Guests can sit in the glass treehouse and take in the surrounding micro forest. The transparency of the glass material allows for unobstructed views of the scenery. The house was meant as more of an art form rather than an actual functioning house. However, it can serve as a wonderful place to just sit down and immerse you in nature.

The house reflects the questionable nature of online security and privacy, especially in social media. Another message the glass treehouse conveys is the loss of a child’s innocence over time. This was depicted by the use of cold glass instead of the traditional warm wood for the house. The concept of this project is an amazing display both architecture and art form.

In addition to the glass structure, Architect Gerardo Broissin has created a lushly planted micro forest. The chantli kuaulakoyokan, or house in the tree top, forms part of Design House, an event that takes place each year as part of design week Mexico.
