Adaptable Desert Hut
Designed by Timothy Stratton

From: North East, United States
Shelter location: United States
Date accepted: July 19, 2009

Located in Phoenix, Arizona the orientation and build of the shelter are designed to maximize shading and ventilation in the extremely hot, dry summer months. The use of moveable walls is the focal point of the design, to increase exposure and direct cool summer prevailing winds from the south into the sheltered space. Proper placement of overhangs, fences, and light mass material with reflective properties decrease solar radiation.
