Habitation Y-BIO, by Alix Shelest and Archinoma is a modular camping system meant to be erected right on top of the sand (and is also destined for Burning Man). There are seven main components including a central 2-level pyramid, several satellite “tents” and a fire pit. See the full gallery here. (via iain claridge)
