7 Times Architects Created Buildings Around Trees


Life existed well before human beings sprouted on earth. The mere audacity to try and  conquer nature, then, is brainless. But we rarely learn. As we grow, so do our needs and desires. An ideal example that we all can relate to and, on some level, be guilty of, is the damage to nature caused by construction. Leave aside harming our environment by pollutants, builders and architects have gone as far as wiping out vast spreads of forests and trees to make space. For a small, thoughtful section of architects, though, this isn’t an option. Specializing in skillful co-existence, these creators realize the importance of accommodating ourselves to inhabit the same land our trees do. These 7 times architects built buildings around trees – buildings as varied houses, offices, cafeterias, restaurants and more – are humbling and wholesome.

These designs of buildings around trees prove that nature and man don’t have to fight against each other. Man is, as simply as it can be put, a part of nature. Uncomplicated living conditions can be met easily; the two can find ways to exist simultaneously, without having to destroy one another. The tree-hugging architects have set some spectacular examples. Next time you see a tree being stunted or drawn out from its roots, pitch the idea.
