shelter me

by Nafis Choudhury

Disaster: Earthquake
Location: Southern areas of Asia
Construction material:
1. Bamboo
2. Polyester fabric

My concept is foot a very important part of human body. During those conditions of earthquake people lose their place for shelter –home and other very important elements. In my design the shelter depicts a very simple shelter shaping a foot. For the structural support I have used a bamboo at every corner and to cover it polyester fabric has been used. Bamboos are anchored to ground to resist severe conditions of environment. Fabric has bee tied at each corner with the bamboo. These are light weight material and have the potential for mass production and distribution. The shelter can be easily constructed also dismountable and has ability of re-use and storage.
