Architect to the Sky

Discover the art of tree house design and creation through the heart, mind and music of Roderick Romero, one of the great visionaries in his field. Roderick has pushed the boundaries of tree house aesthetics and has redefined what it means to be living with nature. Set to the music of Roderick's longtime band Sky Cries Mary & Futruo, the soundtrack expresses the man behind the architecture.

Follow Roderick from start to finish on one of his most pinnacle projects to date, the Moroccan Lantern Tree House. Observe fundamental techniques in tree house construction while exploring the thoughts that shape Roderick's sculptural dwellings. Choosing to use almost 99% all reclaimed materials, Roderick has been a long time supporter of sustainable architecture. This level of consciousness invites a deeper understanding of the spaces we live in and connects us to the beauty of the natural world. His unique perspective illuminates this exciting new art form and translates across disciplines to give elevating insights into the art-making process.
