The Underground Tree House explores the idea of what it feels like to be ten feet underground. From the outside, it appears as a simple cube of PolyGal with wood cladding. The roof top garden serves as the only hint that something out of the ordinary is happening. Upon entering the cube however, a completely different story is told. Roots flourish above your head and a dirt wall anchors the structure, providing an engaging experience. Another wall, filled with educational marvels galore,beckons your attention and capturing your imagination. Take a look through the periscope and view what ants and other insects would see if they were meandering through the above rooftop garden. Additional design assistance was provided by Aditi Padki and Bill Neuhoff. Special thanks goes to the following sponsors for their support: Regal Plastics Wheat Lumber Company City Wide Mechanical Read Less
