Architecture uses many materials from nature. But we usually do not realise how they are reaped, processed and delivered to us. We only deal with the final products. At the same time large quantities of materials in the forest management process are wasted although they have great potentials to be used as architectural elements.
What then would an architectural education be in a forest? Would it really follow the conventional model? We believe our understanding of the potential for, and our appreciation of, the materials would be enhanced by living with them in the forest. Our project proposes a site-specific architectural education program within the nature of the forest and its man-made management system.
