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.
