Emergency Shelter Texas A&M School of Architecture Spring Charette Competition WINNER:

1st Place

The charette competition was to design an emergency shelter using two pieces of laminated card board. The shelter should be able to be deployed in emergency situations to house and comfort victims of natural disasters. The design is a simple A-frame structure that shelters the most area while using the least amount of materials. To increase comfort the floor is designed to pop down to create ‘feet’ so the structure is off the ground; and slits in the sides increase air flow. The shelter can be assembled by punching out the floor piece, flipping up the back side, and attaching it to the Aframe roof.
