Mountain Huts Network
This network of mountain shelters in Sierra Nevada was an exercise of expertise in new technologies, materials, and construction processes. In order to do so, the project focuses on three different areas:
Analysis, scale and location of the network is studied.
Network scale. It is intended to provide Sierra Nevada with a modern and efficient system of interconnectivity between shelters and mountaineers through new technologies.
Node scale. Four micro-architectures, where each one strengthens a determined strategy reacting to the hostile environment. This is the starting point for an immersion in modern production processes for a transportable and industrial architecture.
