A few of our classmates have given their kitset shelters names, so we decided that we would too. After bandying about ‘Frank‘, ‘Super Cool Kitset Tent Shelter‘ and ‘Summer Breeze‘ we decided, in a nod to Modernist Architect Eileen Gray, to call our kitset shelter design ‘R19’. The ‘R‘ stands for Respite, as this is one of the main focuses of our design, but can also be representative of Relaxation, Refuge and quite often Rivets! The 19 signifies the nineteen tetrahedrons that make up the structure (formally the name was R21, but with the loss of two tetrahedrons we had to change the name!).
