It’s cold in Europe. So cold, a Swiss guy put a wood stove in his Volvo
Here’s an equation you probably didn’t learn in school: European cold snap + Swiss ingenuity = wood-burning stove in a Volvo. (Photos: Arnd Wiegmann/Reuters)

This is what I call pristine.
A high-design homage to the tree has officially opened in Zurich, Switzerland, namely– the Tree Museum. This silent and stoic stonehenge sits not far from the banks of Lake Zurich, stocked with nearly 2,000 species of trees as curated by Oppenheim Architecture and Design. Each tree is exhibited in a stunning fashion, shown against a backdrop of smooth stone and green grass. The museum stretches across 2.5 acres, with a special selection of 50 trees planted around the stonework designs. These were the selection of Enzo Anea, a famed Swiss landscape architect who oversaw this project. If you happen to find yourself in Zurich, take a drive out to the Tree Museum to celebrate the beauty of our bark, needle and leaf-formed friends. [e-architect via inhabitat and notcot]
