This project seeks to serve those who have been deported from their homes due to emergency situations. This shelter is designed to be quickly and massively deployed in a range of climates to provide people with the shelter they need to stay safe during situations such as natural or social disaster.
The beginning of the design process began with the idea of a thermal envelope that could serve any environment. A layered envelope consisting of a water resistant nylon shell, an air space, and a unique insulative layer made of clear greenhouse plastic with pocketed cells (bubble walls), in which users can stuff the cells with insulative materials found on site, forms the groundwork for a shell that can be modified with operable openings to serve any climate.
For quick deployment and structural and cost efficiency, as well as a thermally efficient form, the design takes a shape inspired by the geodesic dome. The dome is structured with PVC pipes and can be transported disassembled for space efficiency, and then assembled on site.
