Architects Roberto Dini and Stefano Girodo have designed a spectacular bivouac shelter that now clings at an altitude of 3,290 meters in the Italian Alps. Produced in collaboration with LEAPfactory, the structure comes complete with storage for mountaineering equipment, a table for eight and an area for food preparation. Further, there’s a separate sleeping area that can also accommodate eight. It was dropped into place by helicopter and sits cliffside without the use of concrete—meaning it can be dismantled with minimal environmental impact.
