Cathedral-Inspired Cabins Spring Up at Moselle's Performing Arts Festival

by , 05/15/14

The Grand Council of Moselle in eastern France, is launching its very first performing arts festival this week, and Les Etablissements Tourneux architect firm was commissioned to create a few pieces for the celebration. Located in the Archaeological Park Bliesbrück-Reinheim, this temple-like structure attempts to evoke the same upward leap to the heavens that’s often found in cathedrals. Constructed from just one type of wood, the boxes range in size and height, created with simple bracings and assembled with just one kind of screw. They’re assembled in such a way that the inside of the structure will either be concealed or revealed, depending on the observer’s position. The festival will run until mid July, so there’s ample time to check out the hundreds of creative exhibits, and check out these gorgeous cabin structures firsthand.
