Studio Kyson are proud to be shortlisted (again!) for the CIAT Alan King Awards 2019 (for projects up to £750k) for The Treehouse.
The installation was undertaken as a practice-wide Research and Development project and culminated in an installation, designed and crafted by members of Studio Kyson, that formed the centrepiece of Kyson’s exhibition Beneath the Veneer in 2016. This followed a body of detailed research started in 2010 into an ancient Japanese method of weatherproofing called Shou Sugi Ban and its relevance today. This project looks beyond modern inventions and considers the revival of the more rudimentary techniques that proved so effective many years ago.
We look forward with anticipation to the award ceremony in September!
