Sophie A. Bain Industrial Design 2012


This compendium of materials created during the research and concept development phases, has been presented sperately here to demonstrate the options available for the design of The Allen House. The way in which each component of The Allen House was designed, allows it to be made from different materials. As this is an emergency relief shelter, it must be quickly accessible. The Allen House can be made from a variety of materials geographically accessible.
