Native American Tipis

As part of a humanities module this semester, we were asked to research the relationship between people and domestic buildings in a specific pre-industrial society. I realised i've always been interested in the
 simple yet effective structure of the Tipi. I find it fascinating that the tipi design was very influential and similar structures are still used in a contemporary context, such as for camping or for shelters at festivals, (I've always been jealous of those people while i've been stuck in my sweaty 3 man tent). Due in tomorrow, we were asked to produce a 1:50 scale section and plan of our chosen dwelling.
