The Cliff Hut is a minimal survival unit, the choice of location is free, as well as the way to relate The Cliff Hut to the cliff. Participants will need to access their toolbox to solve the project, reaching new, creative places. With that same creative approach that The Cliff Hut requires, we will all have to face the challenges that the coming years will bring.

A landform, a steep slope, or just vertical. A refuge in apparent imbalance. Cities are in crisis, we are far from winning the battle against climate change, The Cliff Hut symbolizes that delicate balance that we have to discover.
