"I’ve got a whole stack of books in my cart. Most of them are advance copies. I know a place where they get thrown out."
“How many books have you read?”
“So why are you homeless?”
“I’ve tried to work a job a bunch of times. But then I get sad, and then I get high, and things fall apart.”
The bespoke ‘Tree in a House’ design is nestled in the mountainous forests of Almaty, Kazakhstan, and was designed by architect Aibek Almasov. The four-storey home is made from four metal poles, which supports each floor with a spiral staircase connecting each, and is encased in double-glazing glass walls. At the heart of the building, which was built for a 38-year-old businessman last year and cost £240,000 to construct, is a colossal fir tree.
