This Rock Shaped Sculpture In The Swiss Alps Is Really A Delightful Little Wooden Cabin...
written by the renowned Swiss writer Charles Ferdinand Ramuz.
His novel Derborence describes the massive rockfall that covered the valley of Lizerne in 1714. Antoine survives seven weeks under the rocks before he manages to reach his village and reclaim his life.
Bureau A, a Swiss design studio named their little cabin project after Antoine.
It is habitable and functional with a fireplace, bed, table, stool and window and sits on the rock field. The interior wooden structure is covered with handformed concrete.
It may give the appearance of being real but like so many things these day, it isn't.
And when it's covered in snow and you're looking for shelter, how the hell do you find it...
