Tree houses of Korowai

Course Start Date:

In this course, students will be able to explore the design of tree houses build by the Korowai tribe. As the majority of the Korowai clans live in the tree houses to keep them protected from wild animals and other outside tribes, the study introduces to the distinctive high stilt architecture of the Korowai tress houses which is a form of defensive fortification. Belonging to the hunter gathering society with strong family bonding, the tree houses are constructed with large space to accommodate families of the same clan in one house.

The course also throws light on the Korowai territory of the Brazza River which is situated in the foothills of the Jayawijaya mountain range, a southwest part of the New Guinea Island in the Indonesian province Papua. The learners will also gain an understanding of Korowai way of life and study about the significant rituals performed on the new houses which is very much unique in nature. The study highlights the engineering skills of the primitive tribes and their ability to construct tree houses.
