NV88 is a temporary airport that is pulled from 2 shipping containers, assembled, used for a month and then packed back up for the rest of the year.  It sits in an incredibly extreme environment and must also be fun.  Jenda Michl (vertu design) and myself came up with the concept of a steel rib network providing a horse shoe shaped structure that is held together with perpendicular slats to create the floor and seating areas.  A series of carbon fiber rods cross the cross section and further weave with one another before tethering to the ground.  The entire system is locked in place with a fabric membrane precoded with assembly instructions and connection systems.
