Host Ship [2015-24]

Host Ship is situated in front of the Methven Resort and across the road from Mount Hutt College. Three structures are arranged along the site. The shelters are made of locally-sourced materials: cob, corrugated iron roofing, straw, recycled steel and timber. A wall made of earth and straw is used to support the angular roofs which connect to a down pipe. Snowsport gear can be placed into a timber frame that is attached to one of the structures. The most northern shelter is to be built by the high school students at Mt. Hutt College. This will allow students to make their own space where they can organise events or just hang out after school. During the quiet times of the year, the space could be used as meeting point for tourism or a performance space, thus making this a flexible space for the local community.
