A Yurt is a circular tent traditionally made of skins or furs stretched over a collapsible frame. It was a shelter used by ancient Asian nomads due to its portability. These nomads who needed to pick up and move with their herds created this structure. The genius behind the yurt is its aerodynamic shape and structural creativity. with the roof load being shared through the beams and down to the tension cables, because of the dual pushing action of the rafters. Rafters push both downward onto the compression ring that forms the circular structure, and outward toward the tension cables that stabilize the yurt. A Yurt can be taken down easily and put up easily while still being able to withstand some of nature’s harshest elements. Today’s Yurts are still circular like traditional yurts, but have been made modern; some even have electricity and heating!
