tarkine guided walk

looking north from this unnamed secret valley peace was found below the ridge line from the unrelentless roar of the southern ocean. The shell, rock and wind speak of its lost people. Giant trees, tracts of old man rain forest and its myriad of living things, the rivers murmuring secrets, rich veins of copper, silver & gold below.

a pair of wedge tailed eagles soar over head and land close by, a flash of movement over there, could've been a thylacine. There is so much more, what was & what is, but ignorance is blinding. For now, contentment is found in the gaze.

tasmanian eco tourism venture. First of three proposed standing camps for Tarkine coast guided walk. We seek an architectural narrative that conveys a sense of time and place, the cultural and natural landscape it sits within. Light weight high tensile organic shell forms appear to morph out of the track & earth. The siting of each hut is highly considered and laid out on a golden spiral culminating at the central social dome.

this 'other worldly' settlement emits a warm welcoming glow at night against the ancient & awe inspiring backdrop...CNC cut ribs, flat packed and brought in by helicopter. work in progress.
