View Shelters


Truss Shelter
Designed by Blake Smith

From: Tuscola, United States
Shelter location: United States
Date accepted: August 27, 2009

The truss shelter glides out above the terrain drop, showcasing views down through the prairie. The structural, spanning, skin enables a minimal footprint, and re-usable space as the shelter erodes or transforms into an expanded prairie habitation. Constructed from native lumber, recycled aluminum, and indigenous juniper shade lattices, the materials speak to the objective of reducing the area from which resources are drawn for enhanced continuation of life on site.
