Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever offers a historical and cultural survey of the cabin in North America, an acknowledgement of the pervasive influence of this typology. 

Tracing the evolution of the cabin in North America, we can better understand how it has become an enduring typology in architectural practice. Not only has the cabin survived in various forms and iterations, but it also has resonated deeply in our cultural psyche. I

The exhibition’s layout is structured as a historical narrative in three parts and told through architectural models, drawings and plans; photography; historical documents, literature, film and ephemera. Full-scale cabins, or full-scale structural fragments, were installed in several instances to provide palpable reference to materials, scale and building technique.
