AEDES / Modular inflatable Tents


This is the first Tent where a structure is combined with a inflatable object. There are some transparent parts in the upper and in the lower surface to create a new design. It will be fascinating to walk around and see the structure in the roof is changing also the light will create a amazing feeling.
The AEDES tent is made up of recycled PET bottles which otherwise would have added up to the world’s plastic pollution. The form fits in the environment because its inspired by dunes, it seems natural in the landscape. The most important thing is the modularity of the tent you can use it as rooms or add houses to create a large community.
