As much as you will be fascinated by the beautiful environment at Boisbuchet, in the end there might be fewer ways of actually perceiving it than what you might expect. In our workshop we will think about and create micro-architecture in nature – something more substantial than furniture yet smaller than a hut – which will serve as an object to experience in a more lively way the natural beauty of Boisbuchet.
