How DROP Structures is Solving Unique Problems with Prefab Solutions
A Prefab Art Studio Adds Space to Play in Julian, California
“If all you have is a hammer, then everything will look like a nail.”
It’s called Maslow’s hammer, and it shows us how we can rely too heavily on the solutions that are most familiar to us. The result is inelegance, wastefulness, and shoddy workmanship.
Glamping with DROP Structures
Nestled in among cypress and cedar on a small farm in Southern California, a young girl peers out the window of her MONO mini art studio and traces the lines and colors of the mountain view onto the canvas in front of her. Just a few feet away, her parents sit outside a small farmhouse enjoying the slow pace of life on the farm and avoiding, for now, the inevitable return to the noise and action of the city.
The term glamping began as a portmanteau meant to poke fun at the Instagram influencer movement. But these days, what started as a play on words has spawned a $5 billion dollar/year industry in Europe.
With new years of experience designing, building and shipping small structures, DROP Structure is moving into the glamping industry with new ideas and new designs.
