An eco-refuge for climbers – Gervasutti

 

The Italian firm LEAPfactory (the acronym means Living, Ecological, Alpine Pod) has designed and installed a modular unit at an altitude of 2800 meters, in front of the spectacular East face of the Grandes Jorasses of the Mont Blanc Range. The modular shelter-pod is self sustainable, with solar energy panels and has been completely furnished at factory. Then it was taken up with helicopters and assembled on site from several units – living, sleeping, sanitary and entry unit.
