The PyraPod is designed to be a habitable structure which can be built and lived in with minimal environmental impact. It uses renewable materials which can be found locally (in this part of the world) and does not by necessity depend on any process which can only exist in a petroleum-based economy. Thus it is intended that this design can be reproduced indefinitely in a low-carbon sustainable future.
In use the PyraPod is thermally efficient, thus minimising the use of fuel for heat, and is also practically maintainable with the use of simple woodworking tools.
And to cap it all, it is a beautifully elegant shape which appears both strong and humble; grounded and peaceful.
