Let's Get Wild. derives from the theme back to basics. It serves as a place for yourself where you can find peace when the social impulses get too much.
This place is a shelter built from natural materials. These materials have no impact on the environment. And therefore nature can recycle it, when a shelter is no longer in use.
The project shows that one can make do with much less. Useful materials can be found all around us. For the design you are depended on what you find.
Therefore you are forced to be creatively with what you have. To get away as far as possible from society the hut is situated in nature.
This will make you temporarily more focused on yourself and you have to apply knowledge and common sense in the situation. Relying on your primal instinct and go back to basics.
Back to Basic is the starting point for the project. To let yourself be vulnerable and learn new insights.
Letting go of concepts like money, power, possessions and perfection of physical appearances.
Rebelling against the current society
and its associated ideas. The moment of breaking free translated into a place for yourself in nature. The perfect location to be back to basic without external influences (society) is nature. Creating a serene place that gas little to no negative impact on the environment.
The first shelters were built as research for a possible final design. The shape and construction are the result of the found materials.
These shelters are built without research into materials and building techniques.
