"After a year and a half of living in a Brooklyn apartment, Casey Brown and Danfung Dennis started hatching an escape plan. So in 2012, the couple swapped urban life for total seclusion: a 12-acre lot outside Park City, Utah, where they built a yurt amid an aspen grove.

“We were intrigued by this concept of ‘living in the round,’ ” explains Dennis, who first encountered the nomadic shelter 13 years ago while on a mountaineering expedition in Kyrgyzstan. “If you think about the cycle of the seasons, the shapes of the earth, the moon, the sun—everything is circular, like a yurt. Living in one made sense to us.”"
