The yurt is a geodesic yurt dome. Its yurtish-ness is its portability, its assemble-ability.
Its dome-ish-ness is in its curved surfaces, and its over-all curved structure.
Those are the two criteria that majorly contributed to the selection of this particular ‘structure’ to make the test-bed prototype structure with.
The prototype will be used to test various interactive technologies and scenarios with user groups/audience- participants.
The processes for design and construction, as well as these testings will be documented throughout. Its bigger and heavier but smaller and lighter than I expected.
