Kirkwood McCarthy Spar

Iceland Spar

A dramatic, way-finding travellers hut

Status: Concept

Location: Iceland

Category: Competition

The prismatic, transparent form of the hiking hut is influenced by Calcite formations and the Iceland Spar.

The Icelandic Spar as a means navigation can be dated back to the Vikings. The hiking hut pays reference to this history. The crystalline peak of the huts’ cladding is orientated to due North; the hut is a way-finding object within a dramatic landscape setting.
