Replacing the traditional white Festival and Expo Tent design commonly used at Festivals, EMU Eco Tents will provide an eco-friendly aesthetic in an energy-producing, free-standing structure.

The goal is to create a portable structure that can be installed on a city street as easily as it can at the top of a mountain. All of the materials will be biodegradable, easily recyclable, or have a sustainable end-of-life plan, so none of it ends up in a landfill. Finally, the design must be simple enough that the tent could be assembled by a few people with minimal or no tools.

EMU called on several designers, then whittled their proposals down to these three finalists.
