The dream of Arcadia has been deeply rooted in european culture for centuries. On the one hand the term describes a real swath of land in antique Greece. On the other hand it is an idea for an emotional hideaway, to live in harmony with yourself and nature. Like the idea of Arcadia the Spirit Shelter consists of two main parts. The research section provides tools to discover the physical world, the wilderness. The sleeping section offers space for meditation and self-exploration. In order to find one‘s personal Arcadia, the Spirit Shelter is designed in a modular system. The wooden frame construction can be disassembled and transported to any scenery.
