Marking the Forest, now in its second year, is a ten-day summer course by the Architectural Association. Set in a managed forest in central Oregon, it aims to engage students with the forest through thoughtful architectural intervention.

This year’s project, “The Amplifier,” explores the possibilities of enhancing and amplifying aspects of the forest that may not have been initially apparent. The structure, built using timber from the forest, acts as a passage into the forest, taking visitors from a clearly laid gravel path into the wild beyond.

The program is a collaboration between the AA, the University of Oregon School of Architecture, and the Bauman Family Tree Farm. It is set to run for five years (2012-2017) and is open to interested architecture/design students and professionals worldwide.
