Guggenheim Shelter in Brooklyn

Prefabricated design of a single-user shelter.
The Shelter is comprised of several elements
which include a foundation pylon with integrated

'structural basket', the integral sleeping and
reading assembly, laminate glass with internal
dot-screen layer for filtering UV light, as well as
an oculus that lets in roof light
while keeping water out.
