One of the most remarkable Hungarian paintings, Pál Szinyei-Merse’s “Majális”, represents the relationship of citizens with nature. It refers to the connection of humans and nature, even though the village people on the picture are not its main characters. Citizens are bringing their civilized equipment such as a blanket, a basket, a napkin, etc. to a picnic party. In the architect’s opinion, BIWAK is also a piece of equipment. The concept of BIWAK is a minimal, low-cost, and simultaneously comfortable answer to the desire of the citizen to move into nature. The BIWAK can be a shelter, a hut, or even a secret meeting point of lovers from the village.
