Y-BIO by Archinoma

Archinoma created Y-BIO, a temporary, modular colony that presents a new way to create an instant shelter and connection with nature. The Y-BIO unit is designed according to the “Sierpinski pyramid” mathematical model, and is created by attaching three chains to three vertexes of three tetrahedrons (did you get that?) strung up so that they’re levitating slightly above the ground. The entire thing is held together using structural steel tubing.

I wonder if we’re going to see these popping up all over the place? This one was the first experimental colony, created in Crimea.
