In early June, I happend upon a Playhouse Tour at the trendy Stanford Shopping Center. A total of 15 structures were lavishly designed and built by Bay Area architects, designers and builders. Most were auctioned to benefit Rebuilding Together Peninsula, a non-profit organization helping low-income family to repair their homes. It was a real treat to see this great collection of functional and innovative structures for juniors’ outdoor living.

Plus a number of modern ones with the top right one being my favorite for its intricate organization of space, which reminded me of the best man-made hills in Classical Chinese Gardens.
My son’s favorite is this one called Oblique House designed by Barbara Butler Artist-Builder, Inc.
