There will come a day when the average residential home will have less of a negative effect on the environment. It will become de rigueur to build with recycled and sustainable materials and operate with off-the-grid energy. The zero-impact On Mountain Hut is a temporary residence that shows us what’s possible. Built by the makers of On athletic shoes and apparel, the shiny duplex uses solar panels, a rainwater filter, and eco-conscious/eco-friendly materials, and it also manages to look like a legitimate piece of the future. While it might not seem exactly posh, every aspect is thoughtfully practical, and its placement in the gorgeous Swiss Alps seems apropos. Once the hut is deconstructed, it will have left no waste and no evidence it was ever there.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
