HexaYurt at Burning Man

So I came across this via Paul Polak's FB page (he wrote Out of Poverty) and thought it was really cool.

We stayed in traditional Mongolian Gers (aka Yurts) when we visited there in '08 and I thought they were awesome.

This guy's concept for one that he carried to Burning Man (Yakers, where are you?) was very nifty!

Yes, I saw a bunch of yurts @ BM last year. One had a solar powered swamp cooler, very nice inside.
DW & I have been there three times but will not be there this year. Always interesting things there, some great amateur engineering in the buildings, art works, and especially the vehicles.
