Tree House for Grown Up Escapes, Pilotis in a Forest from Jutaku, Japanese Houses

Back in October, I featured Winnowy homes and narrow buildings from Jutaku: Japanese Houses (October 12, 2015-Phaidon Press) by Naomi Pollock , an eruption of imagination in 400 architectural vignettes.

Today, I turn my attention to homes built with nature and gardens in mind.
