The Invisible City to bring gigantic treehouses to Regent’s park

Posted at 1:45 pm, February 11, 2014 in Arts & Entertainment, Fun London

Kids love a good treehouse, it’s the ideal getaway, a place for them to escape to their fantasy worlds and let their imaginations run wild. Well why should kids get all the fun? Adults need treehouses too! New art project ‘The Invisible City’ has plans to build massive treehouse pavilions where everyone has space to dream.


For three months this summer, three pavilions (resembling wooden spaceships) will perch on the banks of Regent’s Park Boating Lake. Made from timber and wrapped in a transparent skin, the idea is to make them blend into the surrounding nature and inspire us to use our imaginations.

It will be a public space welcoming all types of performance, from circus acts, to immersive ballet and interactive storytellers. Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton are both big fans.

The Invisible City will be financed through a crowd-funding campaign so they need your help! A mere £1 donation buys you citizenship to the shared dream space. Bargain!
