'Tragata' is a Shelter Where Farmers Can Keep Tabs on the Harvest

Tragata is a modern take on a type of building that dates back thousands of years. The farmland lookouts initially served as a shelter from which farmers and workers out in the field were able to survey the crops and get a moments respite from the midday heat, but today help the more common visitors there.

Though Tragata, which is located in a small Greek town, is indeed inspired by the ancient timber huts that the Ancient Greeks used for agriculture, its purpose is different. The stilted modern building is instead designed as a hideaway for travelers on a nearby hiking trail, and it is raised from the ground not to monitor crops but to give those hikers a better vantage point on the beauty of the surroundings as a complete environment.
