Ecofriendly Architecture: Giant Tubular Glass Treehouse

Architect Aibek Almassov has designed a remarkably ecofriendly “Tree In A House” design. Located in a forested mountain area in Almaty, Kazakhstan, the 65-foot-tall cylindrical glass house will feature a mature fir tree at its center with a large winding staircase wrapping up and around the 4-story treehouse.

The design is also incredibly ecofriendly, as the glass features transparent solar panels that connect to a Tesla Powerwall powering the lights inside, while the top of the treehouse will collect and purify rainwater.
