Hello Wood is looking for proposals that aim to uncover the hidden root causes of the cabin fever phenomenon. Using the typology of cabins as the platform for expression, and collaborative building as a self-analysing group therapy.
The urge to create one’s own cabin has reached a truly wide range of devotees, from those who followed Rousseau and reconnected to nature by building their own huts, through the urban nomads of today, or people for whom minimal living space is not a choice but a survival necessity, to even industrial giants as MUJI or IKEA.
We’ve all got the cabin fever.
How could one architectural typology serve so many, often contradictory conditions? To explore this, we have gathered a wide range of possible approaches to address this complex topic of the “cabin fever” phenomenon. See more about the topic here: www.hellowoodfestival.com/topic
