WHY ARKNAT?

More and more of us are turning to the outdoors when seeking peace, balance, and a touch of adventure as a contrast to our more and more hectic lifestyle. But to do so, we need to be able to make home with nature. That is why we are inviting 15 of Scandinavias top architect students to merge architecture and nature.

THE CHALLENGE
Their challenge is to design and create pathways, hideouts, shelters located on mountain tops, in the woods or along the coastline on the High Coast of Sweden. Getaways that are free from distractions – constructions that help us get in touch with nature, reclaim our inner peace and inspire new creative ideas.
