Mastaba Shelter
Designed by: German Spahr From: Bariloche, Argentina Shelter Location: Aswan, Egypt Date Submitted: June 16, 2009 Found near the Nile River and some Ancient Tombs in Aswan, Egypt. Its shape recalls an Egyptian Mastaba made of rock from the site, literally emerging from the rock desert. History here is very famous, and the climate is very intense, controlled by a few shades. The shelter is covered by a very light roof made of papyrus stems and mud, which makes a very efficient blocker of heat from direct sunlight.
