The Newsletter for Architects and Architecture Enthusiasts
Dear Sir or Madam,

Have you also noticed? Recently, architecture projects in combination with trees are increasingly emerging!
And by this, we do not mean the trees around the building in the outdoor area, but such which are found in the interior.
First, we encountered treelike structures in the Leonarde Glass Cube in Driburg. Then we came across this topic in the Tepoztlán Lounge, and then, a little later, we found trees again, in the interior of the Garden Tree House.
Some weeks ago, the architects of Baukind pointed out to us their beautiful daycare project Drachenhöhle in Berlin. And what did we see? Trees...

In some cases, the supporting structure is modified in such a way that it resembles the morphology of trees. In other cases, trees simply serve as an interior accessory.
But whatever their function might be, every single one of the six projects we will present you cast a spell on us.

We hope you will have a similar experience.
Enjoy reading!
Your Eva Konrad
