Black Body Mountain Shelter by Michele Versaci

Black Body Mountain Shelter is a bivouac nestled at high altitude, a few meters from summit Dormillouse (2,908m (9,541ft) MSL) on the border between Italy and France, in the upper Valle di Susa. Designed by Michele Versaci in 2019, the cabin measures 20m² (215ft²).

The Matteo Corradini bivouac is a black opaque body set in the alpine landscape. An optical device stretching out towards the landscape, installed in but few days with a light and reversible building system. A Swiss pine wooden nest which gives life to a new 3000-metre-altitude venue.

The project was conceived by Paolo Corradini and his family, in loving memory of their son, Matteo, a passionate mountaineer.
