The model is designed in order to offer a place to sleep and study. To me the best place on Earth for that is the desert. The measures and modelling of the shelter are the result of two main purposes: 1. A compact and small shelter so that it can easily be moved. 2. Anatomic spaces to sleep and work and even to keep personal things. The used materials are inspired of traditional jaimas. A triagled light structure is wraped by several flexible la yers for isolation and finally the outer la yer is made out of traditional camel hair fabric.
