Game Over, the Coolest 'Glamper' was Already Built in 1972

The world has no shortage of ultra-luxe glamping options, but Curbed Ski today relays a vintage discovery that's sure to give the modern competition a lot to think about. Behold the "Expandable Living Container," a 1972 camper designed by Italian architect Alberto Rosselli. Originally featured in an exhibit on mobile homes at New York City's Museum of Modern Art, the lightweight aluminum dwelling with accordion walls can transform from a 7-by-14-foot trailer into a 20-by-29-foot pad. At its fully-expanded state, it can accommodate up to six people, and offers a bathroom, kitchen, closet, and terrace.
