KOTA is a small (6 square meters floor area) transportable modern tent consists of 8 prefabricated modules – 4 for the walls, 4 for the roof and 2 for the basement – made of light timber-frame structure and OSB panels designed by DUOPUU and built by the students of the "Carpentry and joinery course", "CFP-Veronesi" Rovereto professional training school. KOTA's prefabricated modules can be easily moved – their maximum weight is less than 130 Kg – transported by a small truck to the final destination and quickly assembled to the others by screws to form an ecological tent made of 95% PEFC certificated red spruce wood. An innovative waterproofing and breathable membranes system by Rothoblaas was used for the roof and walls external layer to guarantee a high level of both durability and comfort.
DUOPUU would like to thank the following: Sabrina, Raffaele, Vitaly, Claudio, Abdoulaye, Marco, Nikolai, Fabrizio and Ivan (Veronesi); Gianluca Salvatori (Progetto Manifattura); Alice, Albino and Francesco (Rothoblaas).
