The Nomadic shelter is a temporary modular shelter constructed during the course of the Salt Siida Workshop, part of a traveling arts festival on the beach of the Norwegian island of Sandhornoy. What's interesting about this shelter is that it is very compact at just 12 square meters, yet can sleep up to 12 people in reasonable comfort.
This modular shelter can also hold a fire pit in the sand, while an optional canvas roof can be installed to shield occupants from rain.
You may look at this shelter and say you wouldn't want to live there, but then again it's not really designed for permanent living. It's designed for festival goers, who are usually good at making do with less anyway.
