Treepi
Designed by Alexandros Politis

From: Athens, Greece
Shelter location: United States
Date accepted: August 23, 2009

This is a model of a shelter prototype, inspired by the Native Americans' Tipi. The core point of this idea is the shelter being built around, and supported by, a tree, turning it into a structural element. This is to 1) stress out the dependence of humans from nature and 2) to underline that real protection from the elements comes through real respect to the environment.
