Abstract

Small buildings pop up everywhere across our natural environment. Their purpose is a place where people can stay the night. Unfortunately, together they give a disorganized impression of the landscape. Students of the Eindhoven University of Technology were asked to design a durable and innovative hikers’ cabin, to change that tendency. A competition led to the concept for a new hikers’ cabin. This competition was won by two architectural master students and after that developed in a multidisciplinary project of six students who subscribed for a challenging practical experience within their education. These six students had different educational backgrounds, were from different disciplines within the Department of the Built Environment, were at different stages in their education and had to cope with the different interests of all the other participants. Nevertheless, they were able to develop an integrated design, the Trek-in.
