Designed by David Huang From: Boston, United States Shelter location: Brazil Date submitted: August 23, 2009 Lencois Maranhenses is a vast desert that is transformed into hundreds of turquoise lagoons during the rainy season. Made primarily from native wood, the shelter is anchored in a lagoon on galvanized steel piers and shaded by a fabric roof which channels the heavy rainfall into a wooden storage tank for drinking and washing. The shelter’s deck and walls float independently of the piers, registering the seasonally changing water level.
