Extreme hanging pods create a meditative, light-controlled space for rock climbers

designed an extreme hanging campsite for rock climbers in Massif de L'Esterel, South of France. This elaborate structure would be partly embedded into the rocks, and partially protrude from the mountainside. It is designed to be held in place by a grid of borehole foundations attached to the rock face. Several spaces in the case glass would protect climbers from the sun's glare, and disperse light and reflections, creating an illusion that the sun is lower than it is and reducing harmful UV rays with a hi-tech prism louver system . This futuristic concept was designed to create a space where climbers can re-group while dangling off the side of a cliff.
