title Designing Affordable, Portable, and Flexible Shelter for the Homeless and the Refugees
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 307-316
summary Advances in computational algorithmic design, material science, and fabrication technology have exposed architects to new opportunities in design and enabled them to address contemporary needs of cities and citizens. The far-reaching applications of this technology have provided students with a bewildering array of new tools for their design exploration. Among many of the socio-economic and political challenges facing today's world, homelessness and refugee crisis are the most critical. "Shape Your Shelter" design-build studio aimed to create a portable and transformable shelter using emergent technologies. This paper reviews some of the central concepts of such an endeavor and the role of computational design, digital fabrication, and material behavior as a medium of architectural design education and social services. It describes how these concepts can be used in a pedagogical framework to encourage student Innovation and increase students' engagement in new technological resources as they address critical contemporary and future social issues.
