Marc Thorpe, architect and designer, found in 2010 his own studio, Marc Thorpe Design (MTD), whose field of expertise extends to almost all types of design (furniture design, interior design, product design …) and architecture, internationally. The Edifice is one of his accomplishments: a cedar hut located in the wilderness of the Catskill Mountains in New York. His first purpose is to prove to the occupants that we can live with the minimum stuff: There, in the middle of the woods, living with only a few things allows visitors to turn to introspection and to live independently of society, in a self-sufficient setting.
