Tree House

I made this sculpture on the occasion of my brother's birthday as a gift for him.
I wanted to make a tree house, perhaps because long ago he showed me a photo of a charming tree house and I thought I'd like to build this one bearing in mind the concepts of harmony, imagination and movement.
The ground isn't flat, instead it allows for light and shadows to accentuate the spatial notion of flow and freedom.
The way up is by means of 'tale' steps; the red door isn't completely symetric, it ends (or starts) in a diagonal line that gives continuity to the ascent.
The windows are built acoustically so that the tree house resonates with the song of the birds.
