Project for a Youth Camp settlement in the mountains of Ezkaba, in the north of Spain. The goal would be not to disrupt the beauty of the environment with an awkward design, but to gracefully dialogue with it, by contrasting the horizontal planes of the base floor with the surrounding verticality of the forests. Another wish I had was to make a hut that would be felt as that: a real haven. In order to do this, two deep wooden trusses cover the ‘human space’, protecting the youngsters as an artificial womb from the exterior. However, the base floor is intentionally left open to the views and the magic of the forest, with glass as the only enclosure. The wooden system connects with the traditional buildings of the region, apart from giving the inner space a calmed and aesthetic rhythm. Medium: AutoCAD®, SketchUP®, Adobe Creative Suite® and wooden models. Date: 2010 Read Less
