Design intentions
Imagine that you are on holiday in Greenland. You have been hiking all day and full of the days experiences, you seek out your accommodation for the night: a mobile, lightweight fibreglass cabin, assembled and erected in the wilderness to house tourists and equipped with low-energy technology that provides lighting and heating. Once inside the cabin, you prepare your meal and sleep on a comfortable cot and when you leave the cabin the following morning you deposit your refuse from the toilet and the kitchen in the integrated biogas-module. That is how an overnight stay in the wilderness of Greenland might be in the near future.
