Lastu Shelter - Punkaharju Finland

Lastu shelter was constructed in nine days by 12 students in the Punkaharju forests of eastern Finland. The timber structure balances on a base of rocks, allowing for the inclusion of a sunken fire-pit and gathering place. The staggered timber structure includes a sloping roof to keep the elements at bay.
