PRO/con: Mountain Hut

Client—University of California at Berkeley
Site—Palisade Glacier in the High Sierras
Program—Wilderness base camp/hostel/warming hut
Completion—Dec 2003

This building was inspired by the elemental nature of the site. The structure was intended to stand out on the site with a utilitarian directness. The containers provide housing for campers, a shelter for travelers, and a community space for gathering around central fireplaces in the units.
