Floating Creatura Project Constructed by Summer Camp Kids

floating creatura project constructed by summer camp kids

In the summer of 2014, architecture students federico forestiero and mark torrens were commissioned by beam camp, a new hampshire summer camp, to build a floating vessel that could be operated by children.

entitled ‘creatura’, the design takes on the appearance of a living being, gliding ominously across the lake.

fitted with manual steering mechanisms, the 16 foot-long structure was built from a combination of woven materials constructed from a prefabricated kit of parts.

at the port side of the craft, a human-sized hamster wheel generates the energy required to power the vessel, while a captain stationed in the crow’s nest coordinates the ship’s movement.
