British Designers Create 'Shiver' House In France

Award-winning UK design practice NEON have created an incredible new structure in the Louvre-Lens museum in Lens, France Shiver House V2 is a kinetic “animal like” structure which moves and adapts in response to surrounding natural forces. The cabin is an exploration into the idea that Architecture can be used as a means to create a closer emotional link between its inhabitants and the natural world it sits within In addition the project explores the idea that architecture can be made to seem “alive” with its feather-like paddles moving in the wind. This has the intention that this will engender a deeper and longer lasting emotional relationship between people and the structures we inhabit. Shiver House V2 builds on the success of previous iterations of the project installed in Finland. This new version is designed for longer term use and will sit within the park of Louvre-Lens for a number of years.
