Red kite tree tent
The red kite tree tent, here in builth wells, powys, wales. the tree tent concept was initially created by jason thawley of design studio luminair: “we wanted to develop a lightweight and efficient structure using sustainable, recyclable, recycled and natural materials; a structure that can be easily transported and assembled on-site with minimal, non-permanent impact on its environment.
"what we realised was a unique, hybrid aluminium and green ash static airframe combined with an expertly tailored 100% cotton canvas skin. the spherical structure is 3m in diameter, sizable enough to comfortably accommodate two adults. 100% wool, winter thermal liners allow for all year round accommodation while wood stove, water and electric options offer the extra creature comforts."

Kromlauer Park is a gothic style, 200-acre country park in the municipality of Kromlau in the Görlitz Gablenzgasse district in Germany. An incredible attraction of the park is the Rakotzbrücke, more popularly known as Devil’s Bridge.
The impressive arch bridge was built around 1860. During its construction, other peculiar rock formations were built on the lake and in the park. Devil’s Bridge is no longer open to the public to ensure its preservation. A unique feature of the bridge is that its reflection on the water’s surface creates a flawless circle, regardless of which side is being viewed.
