Abstract [en]

The Dendron research station is, well, as the name suggests, a research station, set in a tropical rainforest. The site of the station is an extinct volcano with a collapsed caldera found in the country of Papua New Guinea (PNG). The caldera has 1 km high walls and has been isolated from the rest of the world for at least 200 000 years, leading to an isolated evolution of flora and fauna found in the caldera.

The research station aims at aiding scientists in the field of canopy research, where the work of the scientists is mainly about cataloguing existing species and discover new such for the sake of science, seeing that the isolated evolution might have generated new species yet to be described to science.

The research station is suspended in mid-air 45+ metres high up in the canopy layer of the rainforest. It utilizes the liana system found in the forest for suspension, and derives its building material and techniques from the vernacular architecture of the natives of PNG, where the aforementioned happens to be bamboo and the latter incorporates reciprocal weaving techniques.
