The challenge is to install real objects, shelters in 1:1 on remote sites and study their response to extreme weather, radical temperature shifts, snow and rugged terrain. The site is accessible only by climbing or helicopter – the modules and loads are prepared according to the maximum weight and equilibrium limits.

A cantilevered overhang, resting part of the cabin, reaches the smallest footprint on the rock. The interior design  dictates modesty, subordinate to the function, providing accommodation for up to nine mountaineers.
