It took just a day for a team of twelve to assemble this 16 m2 (172 sq ft.) cabin at an elevation of 2531 meters (8303 feet). It’s made from prefab panels, trusses, and a floor structure. It sits on 6 concrete piers. The materials were flown in by helicopter; the team made the long hike up.
It was designed by Italian architect Giovanni Pesamosca in memory of the deceased climber Luka Vuerich. It will be used as a refuge for anyone needing a place to rest or take refuge in this part of the Julian Alps.
