Elevated Crop Lookouts

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

— September 16, 2017 — Art & Design
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.
Trend Themes
1. Modern Farming Towers - Creating farm towers that allow farmers to get an elevated view of their crops, monitor growth and prepare for harvest could revolutionize the agricultural industry.
2. Elevated Recreational Structures - Designing structures that serve a dual purpose, as a recreational lookout and a shelter, with emphasis on modern architecture could be the next big thing in the travel and hospitality industry.
3. Smart Agricultural Tourism - Incorporating technology into ancient structures such as ‘Tragata’ to create elevated tourism experiences while also delivering information on crop growth, farming processes and other aspects of agriculture can be an innovative way to diversify the agricultural and tourism industries.
Industry Implications
1. Agriculture - The agricultural industry can capitalize on elevated structures that offer a bird's eye view of crops and modern amenities that aid harvesting and create tourism opportunities.
2. Travel and Tourism - The travel and hospitality industry can use elevated recreational lookouts that highlight ecological beauty and provide unique experiences to attract and cater to modern travelers.
3. Architecture and Design - The architecture and design industry can develop innovative, modern designs for elevated recreational lookouts and environmentally conscious agriculture structures with a focus on sustainability and technology integration.
