MPA / HTF

2021-2023
Proposal

Harmonic Thought Facility



Interwoven into a remote location in rural Quebec, the Harmonic Thought Facility is a place designed to ideally support the incubation of new ideas, structuring thoughts around passive and active processes of collaboration.

2021-2023
Proposal
Temporary Encampment Techniques 

A multi-abode nomadic shelter that acts as a beacon,  gathering, organising and uniting a transient population looking for refuge and a site to broadcast and communicate with the rest of the world with little startup cost.

2021-2023
Proposal
Spirit of the Forest

An in-situ and travelling exhibition that introduces and engages visitors to create visible and invisible connections with their environment and decode the complex relationships that form and influence Aurora Borealis, the delicate and powerful ecosystem that makes up 11.5% of the Earth’s land area.

Proposal
Thought Form Furniture

Objects designed to return to the earth. Carefully layered biodegradable materials infused with nutrients act as time capsules for dormant seeds. As their materiality degrades, the tables begin to consume themselves, eventually losing their purpose.

MPA / HTF

Harmonic Thought Facility

2014-present
In progress

An embedded remote shelter that interweaves contact with nature with an arrangement of spaces that support different states of collaborative creation. Designed for creative facilitating creative aligment and deep collaboration within the infinite depth of the Boreal Forest, HTF helps structure thought and action, individual and collective creative activity, and an affinity to the elements and landscapes of a rich and thriving ecosystem.  

Its form is equally by the unfurling seed of Pinus Strobus and experimental shelters created for hostile environments on earth and in space, uniting concepts of refuge as an intrinsic logistic of fashioning new connections. 


  Fig. 1 Early concept sketch

As a prototype dwelling and research facility designed to support the act of co-creation, its spaces are shaped around universal processes of creative thought, spanning from the gestation of new ideas through thought and dialogue to concrete action that traverses into early representation.

As a shelter, it serves as a space capsule for the harmonic alignment of thoughts for the purposes of incubating ideas, and it is designed in a way that quickly connects ideas to an active and physical process of development in the surrounding environment.

The remote location of the project was intentionally chosen to favour a thought or idea already started. Arriving to the site usually takes a couple of hours by motor vehicle. The necessary journey required to reach the HTF implies a transition from creative exchange - conversation, the sharing of information or other methods - to a point of applied creative development at the facility.
