FEAR & NATURE

SITTING TREE

UP CLIMB

A structure that can be attached to a tree and it allows
people to interact with trees on vertical surfaces without intrusive installation.

Attach multiple structures randomly to the tree to create a playground and stairs.

Introduce a new way of interacting with the tree.

-Since the beginning of humankind, humans rely on trees and nature. But what is the relationship between humans and nature? Does nature need us, or do we depend on mother nature?

-Nowadays, we try to suppress the feeling of fear, but without it, we can not fully appreciate the calmness that surrounds us.

-On a sunny afternoon, people go to the park to find a nice calm tree to sit under or to lean on. People read books, play, and lay down under the tree, but are only limited to the ground.

Combine three ideas, Julien created a structure that can be attached to a tree, and it allows people to interact with trees on vertical surfaces without intrusive installation. A structure brings awareness of the dependency on nature to people, as well as the feeling of tension sitting high. The higher people sit, the greater fear they will feel, but the view will be better as well.
