Floorplan. Showing bed nook, storage and wrapped roof
Finding the sails, laying them out.
Folding experiments. Best 2 out of 3 chosen for walls.
Sewing the sails along the folds. 8 hours with an industrial machine, and much help. The creation of geometric light filtration.
Detail Section of intervention. Bed hangs from concrete volume, sealed by wrapped corrugated roofing.

Detail drawing of roof and wall fabric connections.
A party, from the rear. Professors and students talking shelter.
In the space: Grandmother, friends, mentors.
Lights of the city, helping fall asleep.
The shelter: Now inhabitable, Grown from it's previous state into something mature, and beautiful.
