We go back to the Netherlands to look at an old project of Amsterdam installation artist, Leonard van Munster, who created a tree house balanced on top of the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art with views of the entire city and central train station. The tree house was called "Under Heaven 01."

The tree house was created with old fruit and veggie crates. And from the looks of it, Munster's tree house is nearly teetering on a tree atop the Museum. Munster's career has been full of important site-specific pieces, but this one may have had the best view.
