A Japanese architecture firm in Osaka have designed this ‘tree house’ that climbs with plants to the sky from a 30 square meter base. Ryuichi Ashizawa Architects say that the concept is about reconstructing the relation between ‘nature, human, and architecture. To keep a balance between nature and human domain, soil is put on the slabs to plant local plants of the area. Also, no permanent walls are built on the floors but instead moveable walls are placed to define livable space indoors and out.
