Free Spirit Spheres are treehouses created with the concept of ‘oneness’ in mind, so the floor, walls and ceiling create one continuous space unlike a conventional building. They utilize biomimicry and are designed to fit into a forest setting without altering it.The world’s most stunning treehouses

It’s happening. — Wright

First of all, I think this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen! Secondly, I’m proud to share that I’m finally making some progress on my Google Earth file for the Academy of Natural Sciences. I went through a bit of a lull, with summer camps and my part-time job munching through much of my free time this summer. Now that school is back in full swing, I have dedicated more time to the Academy and my thesis.

(Reminder: I’m creating a KML file for ANSP in honor of their upcoming 200th anniversary! The file will be an exploration for the institution’s supporters, documenting the Academy’s global reach in scientific research.)

I’ve been spending a few hours a week at the Academy in an effort to make some progress on the KML file. I’ve finally played around with Google’s Spreadsheet Mapper, a program that makes it easier to plot several locations in Google Earth with a streamlined layout, and it’s been just the impetus I need to get moving on my project! 

I can’t wait to share more with you all, but for now, visit the ANSP Bicentennial page on the Academy’s website. In honor of the upcoming celebration, the Academy is posting a series of 200 stories about the institution, for the 200 days leading up to the big day: March 21, 2012!

Keep questioning,
