Different kind of layering

Honestly, I'm not a tent kind of girl and I don't think I ever will be.. but this idea, I must admit, is simply terrific. I was just browsing Cristobal Palma's photography when I fell across this project called Wall House by FAR Frohn&Rojas Architects. It's constructed in Santiago, Chile in 2007 and the whole idea is that the construction is based on four different layers.. A concrete and cave-like core, then a circle of shelving, after that a polycarbonate layer and finally a fabric membrane. Can I have someone set this up for me at Roskilde next summer? Pretty please?

My one concession to grungy living is camping - I LOVE it! With those tents I could camp in style ;)
