A yurt is a circular tent type structure. Yurts were designed by Mongolian herders as a necessity to keep up with their herd’s rapid movements. Evidence of yurts have been found from the fourth century B.C. in Mongolia and is still used by nomadic tribes in Central Asia. “Yurt” is actually Russian for dwelling. Mongolians know yurt’s by the word “Ger”, or home. Nomads prefer yurts because they are lightweight, can be easily taken down or set up, and can stand up against some of natures roughest elements. A yurt once survived a tornado in Japan while it’s neighbors in houses were not so lucky. It is typical for a yurt to withstand temperatures of negative fifty degrees Celsius with minimal heating. The design of the Yurt offer’s great heat distribution throughout the entire area.
