Pavillion in the Trees

Not exactly a tree house, but inspired by the notion of one, Martin Puryear’s wooden structure near the Horticulture Center allows you to stand among the treetops, 24 feet above ground. This architectural sculpture developed from the Fairmount Park Art Association’s program called “Form and Function,” which stressed artworks that serve a practical purpose.
