Tree House : Your own Vernacular

The geographical aspects of different areas build up its own vernacular. These aspects consists of potentials like : regional sources and materials , aesthetics , culture , tradition , ...

And limits like : topography , weather conditions , construction methods , regional technology methods , ...

Dealig with these static circumstances lead to a union construction method for each regional area which is the simplest form for addressing human needs .

The prioroty of typical vernacular architecture targets human , the question is that “Could there be a new language so that the human is not the priority ? ” By reversing the procedure of building inside the regional area for human , we’ve achieved the criterias for bringing the region inside the building , aiming to demonstrate only a symbol of the term “Architecture for nature”. We tend to enshrine the habitat by designing and constructing for it same as the figure “ house for human ” Tree house is designed where a piece of natural region take place , a house with not completly close walls , floor coverings with specific soil or vegetation of each area , and a staircase making the way around the tree and ending to another natural floor , all gathered also to make a performative role by provoking people’s interaction with tree house and letting people to remember their own forgotten habitat in modern time , so the user of tree house could be “ human and nature ” . A place to seat , relax and enjoy , A catalyst to make people know and rediscover their own habitat better.Tree house is also a dynamic construction and mutable for each regional area and could be built in any area with its specific climate and vegetation.
