This project was a great experience. After the construction of a house, there were some wooden elevation boards  left, so we were asked to design a so-called tree house for a little girl named Maja (…) we decided to give her a copy of the best known contemporary house with an archetypical form, that is the Rudin House of Jacques Herzog & Pierre de Meuron. We could say it is almost a plagiarism of that building. Almost, because our house has not the exact, but a similar shape, similar proportions, and it is made with another materials”.
