Boeing 787 Inspired Shelter

By taking Boeing 787 (Dreamliner) as   the initial start of the idea, a mobile shelter was designed for  Antartica.   Boeing 787 is the world’s first  major airliner to use composite materials as the primary material in the construction of its frame.  So, this shelter was designed to have a composite (fiberglass) skin.
