Yale Community Treehouse

tree model

The Treehouse is a proposed arboreal structure for recreation and wildlife viewing to be constructed at the Yale Myers Forest in the spring of 2013. This project is the product of over a year and a half of interdisciplinary collaboration with students, faculty, and staff at the Schools of Architecture, Art, and Forestry. The Treehouse is a project for the Yale community. It has been designed to be a permanent structure, and the hope is that it will become a lasting asset for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests of Yale University.

YALE can’t foot the bill for this? They need a kickstarter campaign? LOVE tree houses though! i’ve built over a dozen of ’em and I’m all for it….
Good luck!

I like the version that flashed by that had stairs instead of a ladder.

Yep, that’s what I’d want my kid wasting his or her time on when I paid the extortionist “tuition” at yale– a treehouse. Classic academic dumb.
There are thousands of places where one could go to build a treehouse; I did not think yale would be one.

A year and a half collaboration for a tree house ?

Is this some type of Ivy League secret humor ?

…a lasting asset for students, blah, blah , blah.

This would be very funny if it wouldn’t true.

Whoo, I’m really, really, having a hard time believing this is legit. Seems more like a parody to me…maybe that’s where the ‘art’ comes in?

18 months to design something that looks like it is a model made from a game of pickup sticks! Yeah, right!
