Crisis cabin (2011)


Markus Hansen’s ‘crisis cabin’ is reminiscent of the Black Forest log cabins.  No nails, screws or glue are used in its assembly as every piece slots together to facilitate it’s mobility.  It’s exterior is covered with feathers to protect against the rain. The entire structure is made of 22mm plywood and has a system of shelves on the inside that slot into the rest of the structure and holds it together. The books that fill the shelves isolate against the cold and are the source of reinvention and regeneration. The feather cover reminds us of the unavoidability of a dialogue with nature for our survival whilst the lining of books serve as a resource of the past for the future.
