Volume Zero Competitions is back with its 2nd edition of the Tree House Architecture Competition. Calling for architects, designers, students, teachers, engineers, innovators, thinkers, and everyone else to be a part of the 24th edition of our architecture competitions. Our very own Home rooted in Mother Nature, one that reconnects us to our origins, rejuvenating our mind, body, and soul. We all aspire for a home that is not just an extension of our persona but is also an expression of our individuality and freedom.

With ever growing population calling cities its home the pressure on its resources is tremendous that has resulted in strained living environment. With lack of breathing spaces within our urban environments and with overwhelming amount of information pushed to us every single day and with constantly degrading balance takes the better out of the most individuals. With little to no contact with our natural surroundings, all of us today dream of living more freely and openly with nature.

The Tree House would be the primary residence for 2 individuals and the area of the proposal should not exceed 300 sq. ft built up. Proposals may consider spatial flexibility fulfilling all the needs of their users. The Space program for the proposal must include but is not limited to spaces to play, rest, work, eat, cook, clean, sanitize, and unwind. Participants are free to add any other function to the Tree House proposals.

The design should center on a unique character, one that reinforces and maximizes our relationship with Nature. Client Interaction is one of the critical components of the design proposal. For this competition, entrants may assume an individual, couple, or a genre of people, based on the design concept. The proposed design may also consider modern technological advancements in architecture to make the tree-house archetype adaptive to its surroundings, making it a comfortable home by eliminating any type of hazards.
