A shelter for forest rangers

Today, of only 5 % of the world’s population, the US has consumed 28% of global wood production. The calculation of sustainable approaches encourages consumption and the conversion of the forest into timberland. A supposed equation that has led to more monetization of nature is itself problematic. This thesis proposes an alternative view that facilitates the industry’s interest in nature to cross the longstanding economic and ecological barriers. The project speculates aspects of standardization, manual assembly, and graphic identity through the design of a home shelter for forest rangers.
