UCSF’s building a new community center in the Aldea Student Housing area. There’s nothing especially wrong with the building, a practical-looking structure that’s going where a student residence used to be. [ETA Aug 2011: Here’s a picture of the completed building.]
But someone sent us this picture, and we indulged in a little wishful thinking: Wouldn’t have it been gorgeous to have something like this instead? (Yes, we know we’re dreaming.)
It’s a tree-house in Oregon, built by Robert Harvey Oshatz as a family home. Here’s the link to the article on his website. It has a lot more photographs.
nothing like a little imagination and artistry! something like that would attract people to study the area, which is well worth studying – given its uniqueness.
