Weaved Twig Architecture
Artist Patrick Dougherty Creates ‘Ballroom’ Structure

Artist Patrick Dougherty has created another incredible ‘Ballroom’ structure that is made entirely out of willow tree saplings.

Combining his love for carpentry and nature, Dougherty creates a whimsical construction that is reminiscent of a tree house. The structure took 3 weeks and over 10 tons of tree saplings to be erected. It was made using only gloves and a pair of pruning shears. The result of the project is a life-like house that is equipped with entrances so that the public can interact and enter the structure. Interestingly enough, the material used is considered a weed and can in fact be known to be hazardous to the ecosystems in Victoria. Thus, his sculptures are contributing to conservationist practices.

If interested in taking a peak at one of artist Patrick Dougherty masterpieces, it can be found in Victoria, Australia.
