Critic: Earl Mark | Spring 2012

This collapsible shelter in Valle Caldera, NM aimed to address the increasing year-round recreational use of this isolated site. After extensive research on kinetic origami, I designed a modular, tensile structure that collapsed to 25% of its original size, in order to accommodate the harsh winters of Valle Caldera. The final design included a reception, as well as single pods for individual use to be deployed throughout the Caldera.
