Looking at the Shelter ByGG, it might be hard to figure out whether or not it is an actual shelter as its name suggests or a sculptural art installation. In reality, it is a bit of both. Placed in a public space, the Shelter ByGG offers living quarters by way of an artistic endeavor. It invites people to take a load off by providing a double room complete with a washroom.

Created by Portuguese designer Gabriela Gomes, the Shelter ByGG takes on a cloud-like form quite similar to the aptly dubbed Cloud House. Instead of an ethereal white, however, the Shelter ByGG takes on a bright red color that will instantly attract. It is made out of non-polluting and recycled materials.
