Fake Tree Vortex Threatens to Suck in Entire Backyard

Here’s something architects don’t normally flat out admit about their designs: “I wanted someone to barf when they look at it.” That’s Berkeley-based Thom Faulders, obviously on the warped work above. Deformscape was created in the backyard of Apple exec Jeff Dauber’s Potrero Hill home. The wall and floor planes are actually entirely flat and perpendicular, and the tree vortex is an illusion created by the sloping lines. Fun! Incidentally, Faulders did pretty much the same thing to the inside of Dauber’s house, dubbed Deform House. Naturally.
