This Modern Yurt is a project designed by Zach Both. “Tell someone you’re building a yurt and half the time you’ll watch as a look of confusion washes over their face. “What’s a yurt?!” they’ll often reply. Despite my inclination to tell people to imagine a wood-framed circus tent, the yurt is actually a unique structure with a rich history that stretches back thousands of years. The yurt has been altered and adapted in many ways since its earliest invention, but the basic principles have stayed the same.” Photography by Bryan Aulick.
Rutherford Residence is a project designed by Merzbau Design Collective.
