At Kiörningsberget, a large cube floats on the snow among the trees. On the beach in Hålviken stands a sparse wooden hut and looks out over the water. From the windshield on Kulberget you go through a ramp straight out of the tree tops. The high coast outdoor beads are being carefully built. Within the framework of the project Arknat, architectural students from all over Scandinavia give us both wind protection in fantastic shapes and new perspectives on the landscape.
The architectural festival Arknat started two years ago and has so far resulted in six remarkable creations that both give the hiker rest and a protection against the weather and wind, and at the same time offers formal surprises. Fifteen architectural students are selected annually to participate in the work and after seminars and exercises new small wonders are created and built on mountains, beaches and forests. The point is not only to build functionally and beautifully, the assignment also consists of highlighting and enhancing the nature experience in the selected place. The first two years’ creations really stand out and have shown the way for the future. On June 5-19 this year, a new litter of architecture students will come to create new aha experiences. Work is a collaboration between FriluftsByn and Sweco.
