“The “Fragile Shelter” is one of my works of “Shelter series”. This winter temporary shelter leads people to gather, have a party, stay, feel something and so on in the white woods.This fragile function as being to shelter in the wild nature makes you a bit restless to satay there alone, but when few number of people get to gather into there, it’s get be wonderfully cozy, empathetic space.This is a reconfirmation of beginning of the “house”.http://architizer.com/projects/fragile-shelter/
japanese artist and designer hidemi nishida has completed ‘fragile shelter’, a temporary winter structure located
deep in the forest in sapporo, japan. modest and gentle, the building looks to bring people together in an empathetic
and unlikely space which will leave no evidence of its existence once it’s been dismantled.
six identical but slightly offset forms hug the landscape, shifting up and down to mirror the undulations of the earth.
elevated in the air, the meandering form is a direct response of the drastic weather conditions, its pitched and overextended
roof designed to protect the transient inhabitants, its body purposefully hovering above the average snow line.”
