totan’s CUBOED pavilion in russia allows nature to interlace its structure

the ‘CUBOED’ installation which was constructed in yasnopole ecopark in russia – aims to work with and not against nature. over time, the surrounding forest will feed into the construction, by weaving in and out of the interconnected assemblage. the aim of the project aims to subvert the usual function of a building – which is to protect the inhabitant within from their environment. totan architects bring human and nature together through a harmonious architectural formation allowing one to take a private moment of reflection.
