The increasing activity of the mountain as a recreational area for tourists, climbers and hikers, is leaving the dramatic consequences for its delicate ecosystem. From year to year the increase of housing construction and permanent shelters in the high mountains, are the cause of indelible scars and points of no return. The project intends to place himself in contrast, suggest alternative ways to enjoy the mountains, promoting sustainable development and use of solutions with minimum environmental impact. "Eco-temporary refuge" is a building to stay in the mountains, designed to be self-sufficient, flexible and easily removable.
