The building levels are shaping up well, with Top Knot Carpentry & Joinery continuing to work their way up over the next 5 weeks with the same momentum.

The The University of British Columbia transit shelter was completed back in 2013 and incorporates a visual balance between random and regular patterns that one finds in nature. The striking bus shelter is now a staple in UBC’s unique architecture. If you are ever lost while trekking in harsh weather in Iceland, then you should pray and hope to find refuge in a glamping oasis like the Skyli Trekking Cabin. Skyli means “shelter” in Icelandic and it can provide shelter to 15 mountaineers at a time. The angular structure features four gabled roofs and resembles a tent but is actually clad in a steel facade to protect you from the weather.
