As children's hideaways, ornamental garden features, spiritual retreats, and even as offices, studios, and full-time homes, treehouses provide places of isolation, independence, and imagination where one can literally rise above the demands of daily life. Here, architect Adam Mornement and historian Paula Henderson explore extraordinary aeries past and present, from the treehouse-dwelling tradition of South Sea hunter-gatherers to the Green Magic eco-treehouse resort in Kerala, India; from Normandy’s 400-year-old chapel-in-the-oak to the tree nests and tree tunnels that movie star John Malkovich created for his children; from treehouses in literature to the ecologically sustainable dwellings built from modern technology that will be the treehouses of tomorrow's world. Engaging, thoroughly researched, and packed with hundreds of fabulous photographs and illustrations, Treehouses is destined to become the classic reference work on this magical subject.
