The Eco-Temporary Refuge is a Bold Mountaintop Endeavor

I've seen a myriad of different prefab eco architecture designs in my time, but few of them were as ambitious, adventurous or as fascinating as the Eco-Temporary Refuge by Cimini Architettura.

Designed to be a solar-powered wilderness retreat that is as self-sustaining as possible, the Eco-Temporary Refuge would make use of a large solar array on its roof to power its heating, electricity and water supply (which is a snow melting apparatus). Because the Eco-Temporary Refuge can easily be moved and removed via helicopter, its impact on its site is surprisingly negligible.
