The yurts style of village / Building design

The yurts style of village
The yurts style of village



Olympic villages often go unused after the games and become white elephants, a total waste of space and money. The design concept for the yurts style of village is based on the disassembled structure, which is a semi-permanent part of the building design. The building is pre-made and can be folded and unfolded. The yurts style of village is built on the basis of a simple beam column, which is safe and convenient. The village design concept is for temporary housing and can be used for sports activities or disaster victims. The yurts style of village is a green building.

The fold-up Yurt. Interesting space saving concept for temporary shelter in various situations. The flat pack is not new, but the fold-out concept is worth a mention.
We are excited to be selected as one of the winners of iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD 2017. It is not only an encouragement to us, but also a kind of recognition. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped us and want to share with them the pleasure and honor of receiving this award. In the future we will continue to forge ahead along the path of design innovation.
