This futuristic mountaintop cabin was erected in the Alps as a shelter for mountain climbers

Slovenian Alpine Shelter Skuta was designed by Harvard University students and Slovenian studio OFIS. To erect the cabin, the elements of the structure had to be transported by a helicopter and then assembled right on Skuta Mountain.


The video made by Carniolus studio shows the process of construction: all the components built off-site were airlifted into place and installed in just one day by a team of 60 volunteers.

When you look at the pictures of the cabin for the first time, you wonder how it could appear in that remote and inaccessible place. It looks fantastic and inviting at the same time. We think it would be really great to spend a day or two in the shelter above the clouds contemplating beautiful mountain scenery.


What do you think about the project? Isn't it a bright example of modern technological wonder? You are welcome to tell us in the comments below!

What is the view from the large windows on the side of the cabin? Is this the best possible view or was that taken into account during the design or construction?
