How can humans occupy spaces that inspire harmony with the natural environment? What can we, as designers, do to accomplish this and create architecture that avoids destruction of the natural world while also benefitting our environmental impact?
We now live in a world where architecture takes valuable resources and causes destruction of the natural environment. We are looking for a design scheme that builds a connection between humans and nature and gives back to our natural surroundings, rather than only taking from them.
Our brief asks for the design of a 2-person sleeping pod that can be suspended on a cliff face or balance on a mountain ridge. The fully sustainable and self sufficient design should provide a comfortable, enclosed, safe space to sleep 2 people and a dog. It should be made of locally sourced, natural materials to sit peacefully within the picturesque landscape, making this the main feature of the experience.
The design will provide a connection between humans and nature and considers its impact on the surroundings including construction, materiality, ecology and views.
The structure, or set of structures will be anchored to the cliff face providing an emotive experience for visitors, allowing them to be immersed in the surroundings.
Larsen Liverpool Limited are an environmentally and sustainability minded company and we are determined to make the world a better place than we found it by reducing our global impact and carbon footprint.
One tree will be planted in a key reforestation project for each participant that signs up to one of our competitions.
