Shelter ByGG designed by Gabriela Gomes is an experimental object that combines sculpture, design and architecture, defying new experiences with space, and questioning relations of artistic enjoyment and habitation issues.

Being mobile without the need for an infrastructure turns it into an “itinerant object”, that allows people to sleep inside a sustainable and Itinerant sculpture installed in a public space.
