This Brittlebush tent made from recycled materials was developed as a design-build project for Simón De Agüero, a grad-student at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. The design features a steel structure framing a three-inch rammed-earth wall surrounding the space. The structure accommodates a 150 square-foot roof membrane. Approximately 90% of the steel in the project was salvaged from the school scrap yard, 100% of the earth for the walls was from the school property and 100% of the wood used for the form-work was salvaged from on-site renovation waste.
