Arboreal Architecture: Taking Inspiration from Trees

They’re such an important part of the natural world, it’s no surprise that trees inspire art, design and architecture with their elegance, strength and sense of history. These 14 architectural works, including memorials, restaurants, commercial structures and public pavilions, have taken visual and symbolic cues from trees in both bold and subtle ways.

Glenn Murcutt: A Singular architectural practice. ...Glen Murcutt's powerful architectural poetic (is) most tellingly conveyed by the building lodged in the landscape; the building as line, holding the horizon and calibrating infinity; the building in submission - not subjugating the land; the building as an expression of ideology and rationalism; the building as embodiment of an existential contract of human freedom and responsibility, confronting the unavoidable destruction that accompanies human occupation.

Glenn Murcutt: A Singular architectural practice
