The Tree Line

reForm has worked with engineers, Elliott Wood to develop a concept design for a reconfigurable structure to reduce crowd densities and support social distancing measures at large scale outdoor events.

The global events industry is faced with a new set of challenges to achieve safe and successful visitor experiences. Tree Line provides new areas for viewing, helping to achieve viable visitor numbers whilst reducing crowd density with a one-way system, so visitors do not need to pass at either level.

As an elevated walkway the structure offers exciting new viewpoints for visitors and new creative opportunities for event organisers. Inspired by the stem and leaves of a plant, the structure includes a meandering walkway with separate viewing platforms and access ramps at each end. The design is based on a transportable length, fully prefabricated off site so that it can be erected quickly on site.

Nik Randall, Managing Director, reForm Architects said:

“The beauty of Tree Line is that it addresses the challenges currently faced by many events and takes that opportunity to enhance the visitor experience.”
