Urban Cabin, FreelandBuck. Los angeles Design Festival 2018

FreelandBuck has made an installation in cooperation with Mini Living at the Los Angeles Festival in 2018. It is called “Urban Cabin” and is a continuous installation that travels in cities and is adapted by local architects. Each variation is studied in a limited space inspired by its surroundings, in order to demonstrate the various space saving approaches producing unique identities.

The Urban Cabin in Los Angeles is made up of two pre-set external residential sections that are flanked by a central space designed. Although the microcabin as a residential type generally focuses on efficiency within a small space, this in Los Angeles is studied in a public space to enhance the collective experience. FreelandBuck focused on extending the perceptive boundaries and the contemplative life of a living space through spatial effects and assemblies of experimental materials. Two nested boxes built with an aluminum frame are wrapped in translucent polycarbonate molded with the image of a third box that seems to be projected through the structure. There is a hanging garden that forms another cubic volume suspended from the enclosure.
