Designer Wants to Bring Tree Buildings to Cities

New, 1 comment

Dutch designer Raimond de Hullu MSc has unveiled a concept for a project called Oas1s, which, in their own words, consists of "tree-like houses and forest-like communities." The houses would be 100 percent self-sufficient, with solar panels and boilers, water and air heath pumps, water and heath storage, grey water and filtration systems. Also, they would be wrapped in foliage so as to look like trees. Call us (and them, we guess) crazy, but they actually look, and sound, really cool.
