As part of the 2012 Sydney Architecture Festival we are very excited to be exhibiting our newly constructed Relief Shelter protype in Martin Place. The Shelter will be delivered to the site on the 28th of October flat packed on the back of a truck and constructed in-situ, simulating a real-life response situation, spectators are welcome! The shelter will be open for the public to tour through on Monday the 29th of October, and we'd love you to come and check it out and say hello.
Our Vision for the Shelter:
"In a world increasingly challenged by man-made and natural disasters, we as architects have applied our skills and experience to the development of a sustainable housing prototype which can be readily and cheaply transported to diverse and remote locations.
It can be assembled quickly and applied to many diverse purposes, however the shelter has been specifically designed for easy transport and asembly in remote areas. This building could make a significant difference when applied to a range of medium to long-term housing solutions and provide immediate solutions to industry as it moves to frontier locations, but we think it would also make wonderful holiday, mining and remote community housing or could perhaps serve as a field research laboratory or National Parks and Wildlife Services trekking cabins."
