The idea of applying boredom and constraint into the nature tourism is first applied into two summer houses, a typology that represents a relevant percentage of the built environment of the South Funen Archipelago, Denmark (site for the Master Dissertation). Announcements on various online platforms promote each house as authentic, advertising the isolated lifestyle (live like an islander) and stressing the ancient-looking aspect of the shelter, in most of the cases a former farm converted into a cozy and comfortable house. In the first intervention, Landscape 360 Summer House, the design takes fragments of the advertisement descriptions in a literal way, by defining a space which is fully isolated and where landscape is completely surrounding the house but never physically graspable. It is showcased for what it actually is: a surface.
An hypothetical walk through the intervention imagines a shift in the user’s emotions. In the second intervention, My Private Domestic Landscape, the landscape is decomposed in its elements, - the sky, the sea, the greenery- which are then singularly introduced into the house. Some architectural objects frame the view in each room so that only one of the elements is observed. In this way, a link is forced between one element of the landscape and one dwelling function. These obstacles can be destroyed, but only from awaiting, as they are made of salt bricks, that melts when exposed to rain. This does not only create expectation but also frustration and boredom, for the slowness with which every change can or cannot happen. To live in this house is to be educated to awaiting, as well as to imagination, that recurs as a way to anticipate what happens behind the walls.
