The Sliding Shelter by Christophe Benichou Architectures
Status: Theoretical Project

The Sliding Shelter” is an isolated refuge amidst vast snowy slopes. Its inclined geometry hugs the topography as much as it contrasts by its abstraction. After the precarious balance of Tip-Box, The Sliding Shelter suggests a motionless slip towards freezing depths below. Both structures may question the place of man in his environment and the future of this cohabitation.

Upstream, a thermal airlock welcomes the visitor and serves as a temperate storage space. Like a greenhouse, it preheats the rest of the building, an open volume subdivided into a succession of platforms that reveal the slope and house the different functions. These cascading terraces end with a dizzying plunging view: a warm and cozy observatory on melting ice.
