Pull your own sled shelter: Dutch designer Rob Sweere designed these movable "sled huts" for Children's Home Uummannaq, a home for abused, neglected and disabled children on the island of Uummannaq off Greenland's west coast. They were commissioned by the Uummannaq Polar Institute after the hut the children's home used for on-the-land excursions sank into melting permafrost. According to Mother Nature Network (mnn.com), the mobile huts can accommodate up to six people and have benches and table tops inside but no heating. (ROB SWEERE PHOTO FROM MNN.COM)
