Very nice model; reminds me of the Channelwood era from the game Myst (if you've ever played that...). BTW, how structurally sound would this be if constructed, since it has three posts for support, but no weight can be placed on the fourth tree trunk, since it's surrounded only by the deck. (Actually, it looks as though three tree trunks are attached only to the deck).
All in all though, it looks like a very serene place.

I love tree-houses, especially the ones on the Swiss Family Robinson movies and the Ewok cities in Star Wars :D. I should make a modal tree-house complex sometime...

Simple, but this reduced model inspires to me already...

Excellent. This is really impressive, from the fact that all the floors and handrails etc. are dead straight and perfectly made to the little flourishes like the Gothic arch window frames and the little patterns in the floorboards around the trees. Actually, that was another cool idea to use branches, makes it all the easier to imagine this as a real massive treehouse. I love how you've made each step and how well done the rope staircases are.
Cool design, extremely well realised :clap: :worship:

Just... wow. Certainly impressive. 40 hours... but did you have fun while you were designing and constructing it?

I love the ropes and the arched windows and doorway, and the way the... platform and circled around the branches at the two ends of the second bridge, as well as the spiral staircase to the... observatory deck and how the steps of the bridge stairways were constructed.
The... only thing I don't like is more with the presentation of the photographs in terms of as a deviation or for view on a screen -- if you posted it as a presentation on a board where we could walk up and see it is something else, but most of our screens don't look like an IMAX screen... usually too small to even look like a small one. I would rather like to see this deviation broken up and rearranged to... perhaps three pictures a deviation and linked to each other or at least referred to like you did for this and the other shot you had of it? Just a suggestion.
It's a beautiful piece of work but a little tedious to scroll both ways to see all of it in the full screen (with risk of accidentally missing something too) :)

ah yes, it was enjoyable to make! i love the continuous problem solving aspect of architecture.

perhaps ill break it up into more separate pictures later, but these were already arranged for slides for my college app portfolio -- and theres a limit to how many slides u can send.

glad u like it :)
