Mountain Climbers refuge on Mont Blanc, France. This building is designed to withstand 300km winds, completely self sustainable and is built at 3,800 meters. It took 5 years to build this structure, having battled constant 70km/h winds, freezing temperatures and only being able to work in Autumn and Spring.
