How about our next meeting in a Tree House ?





How about a business meeting in a Tree House ? (I could stay at least a month)

Sitting between two mature oak trees the tree house is built out of wood and took eight weeks to build.
The tree house has capacity for 10 people and a pulley system to raise food hampers to the site.The structure was designed and built by Scottish contractors William Skinner & Son.
They might once have been seen as expensive, eccentric and extravagant, current building costs and the availability of new materials have resulted in their becoming a practical alternative to conventional construction."

Knoll - Barcelona Chairs




Knoll - Barcelona Chairs
Mies Van der Rohe

Remember the Farnsworth House ?

Yep, ....same guy.

In 1927 he designed one of his most famous buildings, the German pavilion at the international exposition in Barcelonain 1929. This small hall, known as the Barcelonapavilion (for which he also designed the famous chrome and leather 'Barcelona chair'), had a flat roof supported by columns. The pavilion’s internal walls, made of glass and marble, could be moved around as they did not support the structure. The concept of fluid space with a seamless flow between indoors and outdoors was further explored in other projects he designed for decades to come.
Mies began working with Lilly Reich, who remained his collaborator and companion for more than ten years.

The Farnsworth House - Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969)









Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969)

I have dream't about this house all my life.
The very first time I came across it in a magazine…….
I have wanted to be in it, eat in it, play in it, entertain in it and sleep in it.
Ah…..just to live in it.

I think it is truly perfection.

It is almost as though you are living in the forest without really touching it.
It is so airy….the air flows over it, along the sides and underneath it.

You would almost be floating don’t you think ?

This is on the side of a little art gallery in Spruce Head , Maine called La Petite Gallery.
Right now in Camden , Rockland, and most of MID-COAST Maine there are great art shows going on. These shows exhibit all the famous and not so famous ( yet ) local artist's work.
Maine is the most beautiful place to be in the summer months.
