The house on the tree in Warsaw, Poland by Beata Konarska & Pawel Konarski / KONARSKA-KONARSKI

‘The house on the tree’  (Dom na Drzewie) – an installation in a public space by Beata Konarska & Pawel Konarski / KONARSKA-KONARSKI

The installation ‘The house on the tree’  is located in the green part of central Warsaw- the Powisle district, at the University of Warsaw Library. There are two parts of this installation: first – a house placed on one of the Library garden’s trees, and the second – a house hanging in the space of the Library’s main hall. The aim of the project is to initiate social dialogue about sustainable development.

The location of the installation – The University of Warsaw Library – a place where the young generation are being educated – was not a random choice. The building’s unique roof gardens symbolise our aspirations for harmony between humans and nature. Technical specifications for the structure of the house: the house does not burden the tree. It is made from a very light material – the Forex boards, resistant to water and other atmospheric conditions. The choice of the particular tree and method of attaching the house was consulted with the University of Warsaw’s gardener.
