Dear Hunter

BY REMY KROESE
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 09, 2014

The 'Dear Hunter' are architects, but they are different from any other architect office. They're not striving for buildings: they're after the experience of people like you and me, regarding our surroundings. Their philosophy is based on techniques of the hunt.

Hunting transforms all our senses and makes us extremely aware of our surroundings. Through various hunting techniques they don’t hunt deer, but the dearest thing to man: subjective values within the human environment, personals spatial experiences and perception. They gather this information to use it in the fields of architecture, design and urban planning.
