Dezeen wrote a post yesterday about TREExOFFICE, a translucent pod wrapped around a tree trunk designed by London architecture studio Tate Harmer. That's all well and good. We enjoy tree houses around here, not being monsters. This tree house, however, is designed as "temporary office space intended to encourage workers into the borough's parks." Come on, guys. Let's not kid ourselves here. Nobody is getting any work done in the translucent tree house pod. This is like when your elementary school teacher let you have class outside. You weren't excited because you got to learn more, you were excited because you got to play with bugs and grass instead of listening.
