The conceptual 'Living Shell' shelter is the design work of Omri Cohen as a tiny home that incorporates natural materials to shift away from traditionally more synthetic constructions. The shelter maintains a curvilinear structural shape that is achieved with a bamboo frame and covered with a series of jute, felt and wheatgrass materials to allow for protection from the elements. These materials would also continue to grow continuously to interlace and provide additional protection into the future as they mature.
The conceptual 'Living Shell' shelter was modeled by Cohen into 1:10 models to help demonstrate the feasibility of introducing the shelter into rural as well as urban areas. The structure could be connected to an irrigation system in order to provide continuous hydration for even better support.
