Architect Kazuya Morita in Tokyo built this with a combination of white cement, lightweight aggregate and fiberglass. It was troweled onto a styrofoam mold.
The holes were made with circular inserts attached to the mold. Removing the mold leaves a shell just over a half inch thick. It's strong enough to hold the weight of an adult.
For the price of a plane ticket and a trip to Home Depot, the TreeHouse company in Scotland can build a variety of tree lofts to tickle the imagination.
They build pretty much anywhere on the planet, for both residential and commercial customers.
Building this one will run you somewhere north of $68,000.
