Shelter me

by Nafis Choudhury

Disaster: Hurricane
Location: Southern areas of Asia
Construction material:
1. Curved steel bars
2. Polyester fabric
My concept is umbrella. The reason behind choosing umbrella is its identity. Its identity is to shelter people from rain, sun and some other circumstances. In my design the module of shelter is circular because of severe wind speed. The module of shelter will be used by a single family and the module of service place (kitchen/toilet/ first aid/storage) will shared by six families. In terms of mass production steel and polyester fabric has the potential and will be cost effective because of the way I have used it. In the pictures all the point such as re-use, storage and dismantling, construction process and mass production has been shown.
