The project explores the journey as a progression to become aware of natural processes and patterns along the pedestrian path between Rosario and Victoria in Argentina.  

This path, originally created by the natives to transport cattle off the island, is characterized by the terrain as it fluctuates between drought and flood seasons; the movement of water downstream towards the ocean and the movement of sediment along this flow.

The project focuses on building a series of shelters (also referred to as nodes) for eco-tourism along this path. Shelters catalyze, and make those natural processes apparent for humans to become aware of. They also share the
space with animals and flora. The series of shelters represent different aspects of local folklore, culture and
traditions such as: interaction of natural processes, native species, local history, lifestyle, and belief system.

The first shelter narrates the relationship between the ephemeral and permanent elements perceivable to
humans through the manipulation of sediments. This shelter is also a demonstration of the durability and disappearance of different materials. The configuration of this node is mimicking the way certain animals make their nests and craftsmanship.
