04. TILTED LANDING

“Architecture and the Landscape” Studio Kickapoo State Park, IL Program: Cabins Instructor: Aaron Brakke Fall 2016

AXONOMETRIC


Kickapoo State Park is a site rich in history and is home to many recreational activities for people of all ages. One of which, being the activity of camping. Tilted Landing is the perfect place to enjoy a night of camping while in a luxury cabin. The design of these structures features a completely open back facing facade that is tilted in the downward direction as it stands over an inclined hill on stilts. In doing so, people in the cabin can look down upon the nature surrounding while light is shed into the structure. Scattered across the high and low lands of the natural landscapes, cabins are accessed by way of various paths. Two ADA accessible cabins as well as a meeting house can all be accessed by wheelchair accessible pathways. The remainder of the cabins can be entered from existing man made dirt pathways that blend into the natural landscape.
