We all know what hurricanes are right? They are tropical cyclones!

A tropical cyclone is a rapidly rotating storm system characterized by a low-pressure center, strong winds, and a spiral arrangement of thunderstorms that produce heavy rain. Depending on its location and strength, a tropical cyclone is referred to by names such as hurricane]), typhoon tropical storm, cyclonic storm, tropical depression, and simply cyclone. (wiki)

Dionisio Gonzales is a talented Spanish designer who created some differently surreal forts which are meant to endure while natural disasters (like hurricanes) undergo. The dictionall structures are made of 1) iron and 2) concrete.

The design is called “Dauphin Island” and the structrires are hybrids of beach-houses, bunkers and space ships.
