Theme=「 Primitive Hut .」

‘Marc-Antoine Laugier's ‘Essay on Architecture' was illustrated with an engraving of ‘The Primitive Hut' - from which it wassuggested that all architecture was descended. Created with simple timber posts and beams, it was seen as the essence ofarchitecture. The illustration clearly suggested a direction for architecture, without style or ornament.

However, when we look at the illustration today, the building seems slightly too formal to be called a ‘primitive hut'.                 

I think this is because the social and cultural contexts of architecture in the 18 th century, when the drawing was made, were extremely different from our modern contexts, and also because people's conception of what constitutes a ‘primitive hut' has changed with time.  For this competition, please design a ‘primitive hut' for our contemporary age, in timber.

You must decide and clearly describe its location and use. You must consider where the ‘hut' should be ? In which place, in what kind of landscape or in what kind of city.  And, you must consider what kind of space is ‘primitive' ? how it is used, and how your design evokes ‘primitive', in a modern sense, in people's minds. In this way, it should push the boundaries of today's architecture.I look forward your exciting and creative entries.
