Carl Koepcke (MArch ’12) and Marshall Prado (MArch ’11) featured in ArchDaily

Carl Koepcke (MArch '12) and Marshall Prado (MArch '11) are featured in ArchDaily for their construction system of a rapidly deployable ice shelter using snow and ice as building materials. The temporary shelter is intended for cold environments and utilizes the insulative properties and inherent compressive strength of the proposed building materials to craft a spatial catenary volume. Using parametric modeling and digital fabrication techniques, plastic panels create a lightweight and packable structure. “Instead of using traditional igloo construction, the proposed process could be self-forming under wet, frozen conditions,” explained the designers.
