Flarke

Flarke is a capsule installed on a cliff. Its wings unfold in the wind and lift the Flarke up in the sky. Simultaneously a cave house withdraws into the rock. People within the rooms are able to change the structure and location by a shift of the balance.

The "Flarke" is a manifestation of the human endeavour to rise up in the sky and climb deep into the ground, to seek exposure and protection. It is a hybrid of a tree house and a cave dwelling in constant interaction of movement, which manifests the existence forms of human life.

The varying geometrical configuration of the Flarke is ensued by the different inclinations of the wings.
The movement of the cave house is a reflection of the position of the flying device. This is accomplished through a system of articulated construction elements.
