TreeLife launches in Sydney – February 2010
We are excited to announce that our first offline event, TreeLife by The Cool Hunter, will be unveiled in Sydney’s iconic Hyde Park and other landmark satellite venues including Martin Place and the Sydney Opera House.
‘Treelife is a brand new free event, launched here in Sydney before going to London and New York,’ says Sydney Lord Mayor, Clover Moore MP. ‘This event will showcase innovative and creative sustainable architecture, and illustrate that green can co-exist with urban city life.’
The world’s first major public exhibition of ‘green design’ treehouses, TreeLife will bring the biggest names in international architecture, design and art into the one public place for the first time.
The Sydney launch of the event will showcase cutting edge green and sustainable design set in beautiful Hyde Park, one of Australia’s most iconic and highly trafficked public spaces located in the heart of the city.
Life in the trees
Treehouses have become creative eco-statements in the design world. They allow people to literally be ‘;in’; nature and peace above the stressful street level of life. The Cool Hunter will invite top local and international architects, artists and designers to design for the event a modern treehouse, created from sustainable and recycled materials
Global program of events:
To celebrate the incredible temporary environment created by TreeLife, the exhibition will host a program of events that will vary from city to city.
