In an increasingly chaotic world, finding a moment of silence is hard to come by. For the Bee Breeders Silent Meditation Forest Cabins architecture competition, participants are invited to create a space where guests can “unplug” from the constant noise and distractions of the technological world, and focus on quiet reflection with a simple cup of tea.
Bee Breeders architecture competition organisers are asking participants to create designs for a silent meditation cabin that could be replicated in any number of spots throughout the forest. The cabin’s main purpose is to help guests enjoy silent meditation, where the only sounds they would hear would be the sounds of nature.
With winning designs being considered for construction – and Latvia’s reputation as one of the greenest countries in Europe – projects should have the potential to become a regional example of green building practice, focusing on eco-friendly and cost-effective building techniques. The Silent Meditation Forest Cabins architecture competition is open until October 23, with winners to be announced on December 18. Source and images Courtesy of Bee Breeders.
