TREE|HUB by Werk Studio

View all 8 Photos

Ever have serious plans like I did as a child to build the biggest, baddest tree house any kid had ever seen? This year at London’s Design Festival the TREE|HUB designed by Werk Studio has already been installed for its debut at the show.  Here, designers can all dream and create big thoughts together pulling out the tree climbing, rock skipping, tire swinging childlike imagination. Seems as though a little fun can inspire anyone when you sit them high among the branches. The project manager, Belen Palacios says, “We often see renowned designers having conversations and an audience looking at them, whereas a wider interaction with the audience would make the conversation more interesting. TREE|HUB asks a designer to have a chat with strangers on a tree house. The pavilion lives in a backyard at Peckham, in the most mundane space of London because this is where magical things happen.” This week  Tobie Kerridge, Des Freedman, Gregory Epps (Robofold), Sarat Babu (Betatype), Stuart Bannocks, Clara Gaggero (Vitamins), Rachel Falconer and Lawrence Lek (Hardcore Software) will be speaking in the treehouse free of charge from Thursday to Saturday until September 22.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
