Forest Temple is made entire out of ropes tightly wrapped around a few tree trunks. The area in-between the trees accommodates a generous “tribal” gathering space where artists, artisans, architects, writers, photographers and yogis can meet and reconnect with nature.

“Living in tents and teepees and eating from the nature, the tribe started to do a circular meditative movement to connect a handful of pine trees with natural linen rope. The result is insect architecture, a man-made semi-transparent cocoon swinging together with the trees. Architecture is the art of reality. There is no other reality than nature.”
