Gallery: AA Students Build a Gorgeous Cocoon Treehouse Retreat in Engla...

 
The work includes a pod-shaped hideaway built in 2011, a super-efficient Caretaker's House designed by the AA students and built by Invisible Studio, and Jesse Randzio’s Eco-Capsule.

The temporary frame for the structure was constructed using only four untreated sheets of plywood and one locally milled cedar tree. The strips were bandaged together to create a façade stiff enough to be suspended from the trees. A simple ladder connects it to the ground, while a hole at the opposite end provides views of the surrounding landscape.

The 140-hectare Hooke Park features numerous other projects designed and built by the Architectural Association which owns the property. Year after year students populate the site with experimental structures, including a pod-shaped hideaway built in 2011, a super-efficient Caretaker’s House designed by the AA students and built by Invisible Studio, and Jesse Randzio’s Eco-Capsule.
