Architecture students from Washington University had the opportunity to design their own tree house. The four undergrads are one of nine teams that will be showcased at the Missouri Botanical Garden this Saturday, according to Student Life.

The four seniors created a tree house that was made around a ginkgo tree, it was about 25 feet in diameter and about eight feet tall. The design was visually appealing for individuals walking through the pathways up the tree, and it also showed different facts about trees, which incorporated an educational aspect, the media outlet reports.

"The fact that we followed through on this was very fulfilling," said one of the designers to the news source. "It was a great experience for us to apply what we learned and what skills we developed into a real world setting."

Prospective architects may have a good chance of obtaining a job when they graduate from school. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of professionals in this field is expected to increase by 16 percent between 2008 and 2018.
