Architecture for kids (in your face tree fort!)

by alphamonkey on November 20, 2009

Okay, this is pretty damn sweet. A little more than a year ago, the former municipal mortuary at 104 de la rue d’Aubervilliers in Paris was transformed by Atelier Novembre into Centquatre, one of Europe’s largest artists-in-residence complexes – with children in mind. This is the result. Take some time to go through all the photos and tell me you don’t come out amazed (and more than a little jealous of the kids playing there).

toilet fish tankJust imagine you are visiting someone for the first time. You’ve had one too many Natty Lites and excuse yourself to use the facilities. You mosey down the hallway and enter the bathroom where, instead of your normal toilet bowl, you find this.

I’m guessing you probably wouldn’t want to flush.
