During the first week of May, Emergency Shelter Australia held a charitable event supported by some of the world’s leading architectural innovators to explore solutions to emergency shelters in disaster-affected locations around the world.
With the ability to be constructed in a day, the propose of the shelters was to not only protect people from rain and other elements in emergency situations but also provide a space to feel secure and comfortable in a disastrous environment.
Held at Federation Square, with all the lighting and surrounding city atmosphere the shelters were great to see at night. The stand out display for me, was the plastic and sand bag design with coat hangers by Techne Architects. A great event!
