A few words about the festival

The festival showcases both architecture and the surrounding landscapes. The cabins, all designed by architects, are selected amongdozens of projects from around the world. Each cabin is built only with wood from trees grown locally and must blend into the landscape that serves as their setting: along a lake, a river, a pond, a trail, in a clearing or in a field.. The cabins are designed to call attention to their surroundings and push people to truly consider the place and impact humans have on the natural environment. They also encourage kids and adults to dive into the magic of childhood, when cabins were places to escape to, to hide in, and to play in.
