Mamager was percieved as 'the ultimate whomb', combining the best of the Tipi and the Yurt. No corners anywhere, but plenty of warm, cosy space, allbeit a bit leaky (in the centre). In the beginning she had no 'hat', but strange enough people kept complaining about the water coming in. She has had 80 people inside for a lecture, and regularly some 15-20 make their beds in there. She has been a shop, a meditation centre, a political campaign tent and a nursery, amongst others.
Mama ger has no centre-support, only a stovepipe.
Mamager is undergoing a big overhaul winter 2005/6, to be reborn with a red frame, new door, and a more practical stove.
