A Modular Cabin on the Mountainside

In collaboration with Slovenian architecture firm OFIS and the structural engineers at AKT II, a team of students from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design created a modular shelter that looks to redefine the bivouac. The shelter was designed and manufactured as three individual modules that were delivered by helicopter to the base of Slovenia’s mountain Skuta—and installed the same day. Conceptualized in a workshop on designing shelter for extreme conditions, the cabin is designed to provide refuge for up to eight people as they embark on their trek through the harsh alpine climate.
