TRANENDREEF

Tree tent

Originally design for Road Alert Group in England that was fighting a deforestation; the project became after part of the Pit landscape art festival in Belgium; Wapenaar’s so-called “Tranendreef” consists of four teardrop-shaped sculptures that are hanging from standard trees and provide an alternative form of accommodation to spend a night in the town of Haspengouw.
