Mongol nomads have
a living legacy
Like ancient civilisations do over time, Mongol nomads came up with a very simple solution to blizzards and gales: a circular structure with a tapered roof, which they called ‘yurt’. The frame of the structure is made of wood, with skins (and later fabric) covering the frame.
They could dismantle it in a few hours, load it on their pack horses and move on. They were nomads and they needed this portability built into their homes. But modern yurts combine the luxury of resorts, with the outdoor-ness of the tent.
They also bring in contemporary material like plexi-glass, high tensile fabric and insulation, and then add all creature comforts – air-conditioning, kitchens and built-in toilets – to make these yurts little pockets of luxury.
But why are we even discussing yurts? Find out in the Nov-Dec 2019 issue of WoodNews
