The pole design for this tent requires pre-bent rods creating curvature that can match with the digital model. This will enable the fabric to respond accurately, and with tension when it is set into the structure. The pole design was generated by the space required for interior movement of my body. Vertical height is given when sitting up is required and slope occurs near the feet. This creates an aerodynamic nose to orient into the high speed winds on Aconcagua.
