Elevated hanging houses

This is Andrew Maynard's plan for the second generation Styx Valley shelter for Greenpeace activists. The Styx Valley Forest is a forest of old in Tasmania, with 400 years old trees that are now at average higher than 80 metres. The survival of the Styx forest is being threatened by the logging companies. A large group of activists formed human barricades to halt the entry of bulldozers and log trucks. The activists were to date living in the first generation elevated tree houses. The second generation tree houses developed by Andrew Maynard are hugely improved and enable a more permanent living.
