美国,宾夕法尼亚,莫里斯植物园的树上探险项目/Metcalfe建筑与设计事务所

宾夕法尼亚大学莫里斯植物园是一个新的现代树屋的所在地,树屋距离森林地面50英尺。树上探险项目是一条450英尺长的伸展的通道,其间悬挂了一个遮网,可以让游客俯瞰下面的森林。这个由Metcalfe建筑与设计事务所做的设计的最大特点是在中央有一个现代小棚——人造鸟巢,还有成角度的通道和一个可以让游客在森林上方放松休闲的遮网。这个项目作为公共空间能促进社会交流与教育,并采用了现代设计标准,因此获得了2010年费城最佳建筑奖。我们非常乐意在宾夕法尼亚这片森林上方的遮网上小睡一会儿。而且,我们也毫不掩饰我们对现代树屋设计的热情。


The Morris Arboretum at the University of Pennsylvania is host to a new modern tree house resting 50 feet above the forest floor. Tree Adventure is a sprawling, 450′ walkway suspended in the canopy that gives its visitors a birds-eye view of the forest below. The design, created by Metcalfe Architecture and Design, features a modern shelter at its center, a man-made bird’s nest, long, angular walkways and a canopy net where visitors can relax above the forest. The design was given the “Best of Philly” award for architecture in 2010, as a public space that promotes community and education while adopting modern design standards. We wouldn’t mind a nap on that net high in this Pennsylvania forest. Then again, we’ve made no secrets about our passion for modern treehouse design.
