Triumph Architectural Treehouse Award (TATA) 2018 : Treehouse fit for a Prince
The aim of this international ideas competition is to recognise the architectural and design principle involved in designing a high quality treehouse and the role they sometimes play in shaping our ideas of low-cost, low maintenance and sustainable architectural design in many world communities. This competition investigates, explores and emphasises the importance of sustainable concept in Treehouse design as they become ever more popular, more intricate and more commercial.
The program challenges participants to design an original Contemporary Treehouse fit for a modern Prince as a play and discovery space to be used by the young Prince George, his parents and friends. The treehouse design should allow for adult supervision from a distance with any use of modern technology kept to a minimum.
In the knowledge that every child is their parents prince and princess, combined with an inclusive society we encourage designs that allow for further use for other private, public or associated charity playtime events. The treehouse concept must be one that is sustainability and exhibits consideration for the welfare of the tree at it’s core. It should also project an image of elegance and connection to nature in its form and aesthetics.
Treehouses have a magic that stimulates our imaginations in any unique surroundings and posses an unforgettable promise of an adventure. The uniqueness of a Treehouse is sometimes based on the unique feature of the host tree or anchor points, which adds to that childhood dream or fairy tale of a hideout and adventure playground set high in the sky. It is also a space of retreat transporting adults from the stresses of everything reality to a world high up the tree top to be close to nature or an elevated view. Treehouses were all the rage among wealthy adults during the renaissance and through 16th and 17th century Europe. It known that the current Queen then, Princess Elizabeth and Prince Phillip stayed in a treetop lodging in 1952.
