Creative and Inspiring Treehouse for Children and Adults in Belgium | Design | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it
There comes a time when we remember our childhood and all the foolish games we played. In a way or another, each and every one of us, keeps inside the sunny days, the laughter and the happy simple things, that coloured our lives back then. “Building” your own tree house seemed an important step. Today, the values have changed but the essence remains the same: we all “dream” of designing our dream home. What about blending dreams, those from then and these from now? Meet the Treehouse, a sustainable project, designed by the German firm, Baumraum, in a Flemish forest in Hechtel-Eksel, Belgium.

An Ingenious Bicycle-Powered Treehouse Elevator Lifts a Rider 30 Feet in Seconds

An Ingenious Bicycle-Powered Treehouse Elevator Lifts a Rider 30 Feet in Seconds | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it
Over the last few weeks Ethan Schlussler has been working on a beautifully designed 30-foot-high treehouse and quickly became tired of “climbing a ladder six and a half million times a day,” so he decided to build a human-powered elevator out of an old bicycle.At first I was expecting something pretty tedious to pedal in order to lift the weight of a full-grown man, yet as soon as he starts pedaling in the video it seems to work almost like magic. It really is a clever idea.
