PROJECT MASTERS: CHRISTINE BAUMGARTNER & MANUEL KRETZER
(Excerpted Christine and Manuel’s Original Project Proposal.) Our concept is especially designed for the particular location of the Beam Camp within a deep forest and close to beautiful lakes. While trying to combine these two major elements – water and earth – our initial idea behind “float with the flowers” was derived nature. Inspired by the water lily and it’s rather dusty sister the rose of Jericho our approach suggests a self built toy that transforms a “land use” towards a floating “water occupancy”. Like the rose of Jericho the structure opens once it is pulled into the lake.
