SEQUOIA CLIMBING SPACE
2016 RETH!NKING COMPETITION
The purpose of this design is to allow the explorer to "discover new heights within the giant forest." Inspired by the height and mass of Sequoia trees, a climbing space emerged that brings the audience to experience what it is like to be one of these tall natural structures.
One can climb, jump, or step on to the next platform to get a new perspective of the forest's surroundings. There are some platforms with glass insets for one to see what is below them. Within the climbing structure there are two buildings: one would serve as an administrative office and the other a museum for the forest and wildlife. This design invites people to enjoy and learn more about Sequoia National Forest.
