Camp Forktail Creek, Recreational-Others

TYPE: Adventure Camp CLIENT: Meenakshi and Ritish Suri DATES: April to August 2006 MATERIALS: Bamboo, Balli, Saal Wood, Thatch, Mud and Stone METHODOLOGY: Using locally available resources and technology, Local Artisans. CONCEPT: The concept of the camp is to bring together wilderness, adventure and recreation out of city limits to the wild, jungle setting of the Jim Corbett National Park. The camps have been distributed over a loop to embrace the entire wild periphery with theMachanas the central focal point. The structure has been made with an environmental friendly approach and local technology to retain the rustic flavour of the context and keep site disturbance to minimum. Each component of the structure is re-used from a previous source or acquired from various sites locally. No walls were erected and the space was left open from all cardinal directions to allow free air movement and 3600 views. Related structures around were constructed from stone and bamboo. Some mud huts have been added to the camps, made entirely with in-situ mud walls and thatch, which doesn't need any mechanical ventilation during summers. The central theme for the design is to use only the locally available materials of mud, stone, wood, thatch and appropriate technology provided by local artisans and labour.
