The “Fragile Shelter” is one of my works of “Shelter series”. This winter temporary shelter leads people to gather, have a party, stay, feel something and so on in the white woods.

A number of events happened there. Sometimes, local students make a party there and sometimes local kindergarten children come there and have lunch. This is a cozy base for winter activities.

This fragile function as being the shelter in the wild nature makes you a bit restless to stay there alone, but when few more people get to gather inside, it gets to be wonderfully cozy, empathetic space.

This is a reconfirmation of beginning of the “house”.
