Yellow Treehouse restaurant, New Zealand

This unusual restaurant started life as an ad campaign for Yellow, a New Zealand company similar to the Yellow Pages. The idea was to build a restaurant in a tree using only resources listed in the company's directories. Ad campaign aside, the result is breathtaking: a graceful pod that glows about 30 feet above the ground. The treehouse eatery stands in a redwood near Warkworth, north of Auckland, New Zealand. Peter Eising of Pacific Environment Architects said in a press release that he was inspired through forms found in nature and feels the final design resembles a chrysalis holding an emerging butterfly.Lucy Gauntlett
