Bi-yearly, Cheekwood Botanical Gardens in Nashville, TN hosts the International Playhouses, an exciting and interactive installation that features six playhouses. Each playhouse is inspired by the architecture of the global destinations visited by the historic Cheek family. Designed by architects Gould Turner, the concept draws from architectural works in Spain and by respected architect Antoni Gaudi. The firm developed an expressive and organic design form, each part completely custom. This level of complexity and customization of each manufactured part was only able to be realized with Branch Technology's Cellular Fabrication (C-Fab).
