All images from Tree Houses: Fairy Tale Castles in the Air. This one is the Honey Sphere Tree House. Buckminster Fuller, who popularized geodesic domes, would love this tree house, owned by Robby Krieger, the guitarist of the Doors. (Tree Houses: Fairy Tale Castles in the Air)
Geodesic Dome and TreehouseMichael Wielgus from Krakow, Poland, sent us his dome-shaped, wooden treehouse, which was inspired by the geodesic dome structures of American architect Richard Buckminster Fuller.
“First I hung half ‘egg’ on a tree, with a strong stable floor with 5 haul-offs of rope. I use 2 (A, B) different struts. For safety, one rope is from steel and the second rope is from plastic nylon with a tensile strength of 800kg and 1600kg. When half was suspended on a tree I built the upper part. hub connecting this is a aluminum tubes with 5 holes on the circumference.”
