Architecture firm Visiondivision was commissioned by the Indianapolis Museum of Art to design a concession stand for the 100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park. Their creation is made from a single tree, a 100-foot yellow poplar, which is the state tree of Indiana. They transformed it into a useful building for the park, suspending it horizontally so its trunk goes through the top of the main kiosk.

Pieces of wood were extracted from the suspended tree and used for each of the components of the concession stand. This included structural support, pillars and studs for the kiosk, shingles for the kiosk made from the bark, swings under the tree for kids, and the seating area’s chairs and tables. Pressed leaves and flowers taken from the tree became ornaments in the front glass of the kiosk. The firm even made Yellow Poplar syrup (extracted from the bark of the tree) which will be sold in the kiosk,  meaning you could actually eat a part of the building.
