Unfolding Cover

by Marcos Gatica

The project is in synthesis a folded plate that serves as a module to build single dwellings or whole covered areas to hold activities such as medical assistance areas, food storage or common shelter areas.
The concept of unfolding the envelope contributes to easy of transportation. A package arrives at the site and unfolds into an envelope. The core of the panels is made of expanded insulation foam and the sheets of wood composites, including an outside biodegradable coating for provisory weather protection. The panels can be reused after the catastrophe to build the definitive shelter.
