My Shelter is a section of a hyperbolic paraboloid made of expanded polystyrene panels, which is used for electric and thermal insulation, covered with a thin la yer of concrete. All the interior spaces can be transform for the user´s comfort, even some “louvers” can be remove or close, depending of the weather. Inside can have a view of 360 degrees to the outside and wind circulates for all the space.
