Off-the-grid Experiments in Architecture: The Ungloo
We’re about to head off “glamping” for the first time this weekend (a most unfortunate new term for glamorous luxury camping) after cordially being invited by Robert Stone, the designer and architect of the Rosa Muerta, the noir modern rental home we recently profiled out in Joshua Tree. We’re normally typical rough-it-in-tent campers, but we decided instead of getting Christmas gifts for one another, Emily and I would share a weekend out in the desert as an early holiday treat.
Which brings us to this other alternative architectural prototype constructed out in Joshua Tree called the ‘Ungloo’. The small structure was one of many constructed for last month’s Unplugged: Experiments at Ecoshack’s Design Lab event. Check out how this temporary structure was constructed in a time lapse video below with links to see a few more…

More unusual, “neo-bohemian” desert dwelling structures can be seen at the Ecoshack blog. Who knows…maybe next time we’ll be “roughing it” in one of these. Have a great weekend everyone!
