In con­sid­er­ing easier and faster con­struc­tion dur­ing emer­gency period, we tried to min­i­mize an individual’s  pri­vate space into two insulated boxes, one ver­ti­cal and one hor­i­zon­tal — it is like something in between tent and sleep­ing bag. Boxes could be arranged in various combinations, hosting fam­ily in different sizes. Public spaces are naturally created. Continue reading Emergency Shelter
