GC Shelter
Designed by Luis Alfonso Durazo Ballesteros

From: Hermosillo, Mexico
Shelter location: United States
Date accepted: July 28, 2009

Two rammed earth walls resemble Grand Canyon’s wholeness while unifying the site’s peculiar contrast between desert and forest. High foundations assure safe placement and approach; earth walls and a fireplace warm users, windows allow cross ventilation while decreasing barriers with nature and vegetation keeps interior privacy. Combining two units can increase their efficiency, affordability and coziness, still respecting the serenity of nature and its close relation with the shelter function.
