Yesterday afternoon I attended a preview of the Terrific Treehouses exhibit at the San Antonio Botanical Garden. I had an inkling that the treehouses were going to be masterpieces, and I was proven right when local designers brought their A-game. Nine treehouses were on display throughout the garden ranging from a feng shui creation to a flower fort.
I must admit I was won over by the whimsy of the Magic Treehouse designed by six-year-old Hannah Hughes. Hannah’s idea came from the popular book series of the same name. However, Re-born is another standout treehouse that sits near the Garden overlook with an amazing view of the San Anto skyline. The exhibition is presented in partnership with the American Institute of Architecture (AIA). The design teams that participated in the exhibition were given a stipend of $3,500 to assist with the construction, installation, and removal of the structure.
Opening weekend activities for Terrific Treehouses include: origami, calligraphy, and tai chi classes, as well as, kite making lessons.
