Igloo/Yurt/Tent/Tipi

modern-suburban-tipi-design

igloo + yurt + tent + tipi = fabulous.

The Suburban Tipi was installed at Cranbrook Academy in Michigan in 2006–2007.

From creator John Paananen’s website:

“the idea: take the fused nomadic home designs of the yurt, tipi, and igloo and slip the straitjacket of suburban values, materials, and methods of construction over them.”

Dornob featured the Suburban Tipi, and asks the following:

“So is this art, architecture or something else? That only you can judge – but it sure looks more comfortable than what most people take camping.”
