The Cloud was prefabricated and then delivered to the Park of the Hermitage in Lormont. Treading lightly on the earth is central to the park’s philosophy, so travelers who book the minimalist space [2] are required to pack in and pack out whatever they may need to stay there. Made out of wood and plexiglass, this is a stellar example of prefabricated micro-architecture [3] that does not take up more than its fair share of materials or space!

From now until the end of October 2011, travelers in France may make reservations [4] to use the shelter for free.
