The project was initially conceived as individual exercises where Daniel Chapman, Mark-Thomas Cordova, Jaime Inostroza, Dylan Kessler, Pablo Moncayo, Natasha Vemulkonda, and Pierre Verbruggen were to design and build their own temporary shelters . The plan changed due to harsh desert conditions, and the students, guided by their instructor David Tapias, ended up designing a collective shelter. Related: Stunning Prefab by the School of Frank Lloyd Wright The students took only 12 weeks to build their designs, which comprise two shelters and a gathering space, using materials found on-site as well as inexpensive materials sourced from warehouses. Future students will use the shelters during their time at Taliesin West  and transform and document them on the little maps website. + Taliesin – Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture + Little Shelters Via Archdaily Photos by Nathan Rist
