The LANDSCAPE Show, set to take place 22nd – 23rd July, is running a competition to design a ‘tree house without a tree’, and the winning entry is set to form part of the 2016 event (subject to sponsors).
The international event attracts designers, architects, landscape contractors, local authority landscaping professionals and facilities managers from across the UK and beyond.
The competition is open to all, and the lucky winner will receive:
- A £1,000 cash prize
- A 3D printed model made of the design
- Media coverage before and after in the LANDSCAPE online magazines and related trade media, including features online and in social media
The brief is to create a contemporary elevated tree house as a freestanding structure with a footprint measuring no more than 3m x 3m.
The finished structure should be able to be incorporated into an open public space or a private dwelling and be built independently of a tree, but with the intention that it could be built independently of a tree, but with the intention that it could be built around a tree or within a woodland setting.
The structure should be sustainable and built to withstand the typical British weather.
The total build should be achievable within a £20,000 budget.
