Every morning, she checks in with herself. Brushed teeth? Check. Ate breakfast? Check. Meditated? Check. When she completes her yoga and meditation routine, centering herself for the day, she taps a dime-sized hexagon with the date on it on the "Every Day" calendar she’s created. It lights up with warm encouragement, like a gold star sticker you’d get in grade school.

I’ve always thought fitness trackers are dumb. Often, they look cheap, tacky, and cheesy. In fact, they remind me more of those weird plastic bracelets kids were obsessed with in the 2000s than breathtaking pieces of tech.

the philosophy behind belgium based studio ARK is returning to the basics by providing a simple dwelling within nature. over the past three years the studio has been working on re-designing, building and testing different types of ‘ark-shelters’. the aim is to provide a place that of comfort in the heart of the nature where one can detox their mind. with this perspective ARK has created a new shelter type — the prefabricated ‘into the wild cabin’. as the 40m² dwelling is surrounded by openings on each of its five sides, it is entire exposed to its natural surroundings. each opening brings in a new atmosphere.

cohesion studio recognizes the contemporary need for disconnect. their folly — a retreat in the mojave desert — offers the opportunity for seclusion while inciting visitors to reconnect with the natural environment. designer malek alqadi at cohesion defines the architectural folly as a ‘whimsical structure built to serve as a conversation piece, lend interest to a view and experience.’ as the studio aims to explore an integration of pragmatic and contextual relevancy, the retreat is both architecturally innovative and environmentally conscious. the image of the buildings respects the endless desert vista while their ‘solar tree’ exploits the desert’s resources making the folly entirely self-sustainable. the inventive decisions made during the design of this refuge emphasize the beauty of the site and provoke an experiential connection to the mojave desert.

Photo: Motiv I’m not into watches or wristbands, but for the last few weeks I’ve been wearing a fitness tracker on my finger. It knows how long I sleep and detects when I walk or run, and all I’ve gotta do is wear it like jewelry and forget about it.
