ALPINE TENT SUIT2018
Created at The Bartlett School of Architecture
The Alpine Tent Suit is an invention of wearable architecture created to be worn and deployed in cold climates. The suit was designed to hang over the human body simlar to a backpack, with thick translucent plastic and ripstop nylon folded in layers to keep the user warm. Worn for hiking expeditions, the suit is held together with buckled straps. Upon reaching the desired destination, the user can release the straps, unfurling the tent off the body. An inflator is then inserted which transforms the tent into a usable shelter, enough to sleep five people overnight.
