Architect Harry Gensar designs eco-home that can be assembled anywhere

Autonomous-Tent-Cocoon-by-Harry-Gesnar

US architect Harry Gesnar has designed and eco-friendly dwelling which can be assembled anywhere in the world within a few days, and leave without a trace.

This metal-framed tent rests on a raised wooden deck without permanent foundation. It is further covered with a high-tech, translucent fabric shell that’s resistant to mildew, rot, and pests. The luminous resilient fabric shells cover the metal frame, which glows at night and also provides natural indoor lighting at daytime.

The construction materials, such as steel, aluminium, laminated beams, and translucent fabric shells, make the tent strong enough to withstand all climatic conditions and the cocoon-shaped shelter has been engineered to brave hurricane winds.
