The whole project was inspired by Italo Calvino’s novel “The Baron in the Trees”. The book tells the story of Cosimo Piovasco di Rondò, a 12 years old boy who refuses to follow the rules of the 18th century double-faced society. To change his faith, he decides to climb up a tree and spend the rest of his life inhabiting an arboreal kingdom, creating his own rules. As in the “Ville Spatiale” projects by Yona Friedman, Lucie’s idea aimed to create a vertical space dedicated to culture and exchange above the normal routine of life and society rules. This idea of a fragile, vertical reality is a recurring theme in the work.
