Who wants to stay in a play fort shaped like a mushroom cloud?S

Sculptor Dietrich Wegner specializes in playhouses in the form of nuclear blasts. Some of them are more inviting to guests than others — for example, I wouldn't recommend scurrying up this 20-foot-tall sculpture Playhouse anytime soon.

Here's Wenger's mission statement:

The ephemeral beauty of a mushroom cloud is frightening, how it floats for a minute, delicate and blooming, yet remains chaotic and utterly destructive. We experience a contradiction between what our eyes enjoy and what our mind knows. It is this conflicted experience Dietrich Wegner's work strives to evoke in a viewer in order that we will have a sparked curiosity and unstable assumptions.
