An Urban Forest – Megastructure made from the Building System

Using the building system to create a megastructure of living space in a forest. The building system creates apartments, vegetation spaces and cohabiting living space for both animals and humans. Acting a  bit alike to treehouses, the building system allows people to live in one with nature, in a free, pressure-less atmosphere. A surreal sight to city dwellers, a real urban forest where it creates a new kind of community where people can relax and be away from the chaos a city provides.
