Mind - Body - Spirit
Peter Bahouth built a series of houses in the trees connected by wooden bridges in the middle of Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood. Peter is an environmentalist whose love of nature and memories of boyhood treehouses inspired him to create a grown-up fort in his Atlanta backyard. The three rooms of this treehouse have been christened “Mind,” “Body” and “Spirit” by the owner. A suspension bridge connects the living room, or “Mind” portion of this Atlanta treehouse, to the “Body” or bedroom portion, that includes a platform bed that slides out for a better view of the tree canopy. 
Peter Bahouth is a stereoscopic photographer, an environmental activist and a local supporter of the arts. He is the current Executive Director of the U.S. Climate Action Network and the former Director of Greenpeace. Bahouth spends his time shuttling between the D.C. headquarters and home office of his mostly glass home. He has worked with Art Papers (Board Chair), Hambidge Center, MOCA GA and ACP to name a few local art institutions. He is represented by Marcia Wood Gallery.

The Quietest Place on Earth
This is the quietest place on Earth. It’s so quiet that you can hear the sounds of your own heart and stomach. The average person can only spend about 30 minutes in this room before they start hallucinating.
According to Guinness World Records, 2005, Orfield Laboratory’s anechoic chamber (pictured above) is “The quietest place on Earth” measured at −9.4 decibels. However, the University of Salford has a number of anechoic chambers, one of which is unofficially the quietest in the world having a measurement of −12.4 decibels.
The purpose of an anechoic chamber is for testing the response of loudspeakers or microphones because the room doesn’t affect the acoustic measurements. It is also the best place for virtual acoustics - generating auralizations of concert halls, city streets and other spaces.
