The Wilderness Cabin
The Wilderness Cabin is a one-quarter scale prototype for an pre-engineered structure. The design is made from 34 flat square panels. Each panel is mitred along the edge and scored with a pattern in a manner that embeds the instructions that show the order of assembly. Once assembled, the Wilderness Cabin provides a centralized vaulted space with ceremonial qualities, ambiguous levels of internal privacy, and integrated diffuse lighting. The project is fabricated from tongue and groove pine boards that were milled in NE Michigan. The pine is embossed with mica dust to increase luster on the surfaces.
