Description
The competition is simple: To design the perfect structure in the perfect place where everything you need is acessible. a challenge to reveal a remarkable abilty to form images and ideas of things never directly experienced in day-to-day life. Here also is a celebration of the creative process. Very few of the typical restrictions will hamper the schemes and dreams of the architects,Artists and designers, allowing for an unusual level of freedom: the structure has to be stabilized in coconut palm trees well above ground, few if any walls are required. no heat or cooling mechanisms are necessary, and there are no building codes to adhere to. These high tec low cost treehouse structures will allow the world a glimpse into an architectural future that is deeply respectful of the environment, a current trend that will one day truly become the standard in building design.
