Stunning. Just wow.
Climbers in the Alps can now spend their nights sleeping in a tube that cantilevers over the edge of a mountain. New Refuge Gervasutti, the survival unit was designed by Italian architects LEAPfactory, who specialise in modular accommodation for extreme environments. The tube was prefabricated off-site and airlifted to the site by helicopters. A red pattern decorates the structure’s exterior to make it visible to climbers and mountaineers, who will often be approaching from a distance.
