The Re-Creation is a two-part installation based on a concept by Anssi Lassila. With two "primitive huts" that the visitor can enjoy from within, the installation provides two examples of space an shelter at their purest.
Re-Creation has been created through a communicative process of dialogue between the architect and the builders. One part of installation was constructed of spruce logs by a Finnish team and the other of bamboo stems by Gi-space Design. The two installations offer two locally defined interpretations of the same universal idea. Together the two parts of the installation strike up a subtle and complex dialogue between the architects and local builders.
