Shelters & The Bothy Project - A Fife Contemporary Art & Craft Exhibition

02 March 2016
Metro is delighted to be supporting Shelters and The Bothy Project, A Fife Contemporary Art & Craft exhibition which opens this month curated by Bobby Niven and forming part of Scotland’s Festival of Architecture.

With overall themes of shelter, off-grid living and self-build construction explored through both Scottish and international examples, the exhibition introduces the stories and experiences of some of the people who have designed and constructed their unique shelters in response to particular places. Additionally for the first time in the UK the exhibition reviews Lloyd Kahn’s independent and eclectic Shelter Publications, which has developed a cult following across the world as the forerunner of the current mainstream fascination with cabins and off-grid living.

Shelters also introduce some Scottish-based self-build initiatives that demonstrate varied architectural approaches and a strong relationship with landscape and nature. Metro has printed & mounted C Type prints as well as printing black and white images directly onto over 100 Dibond panels for display at the exhibition.  The selected images and stories give an insight into the endless variety of materials and building techniques, cultures and craft skills that they feature.

As a link to the exhibition, Kevin Langan has built the latest of his 100 Wild Huts at Braefoot Bay in Fife and the construction of this temporary natural shelter can been seen in a film by Time Lapse Scotland.
