The basis for this project is the need for a post crisis system of building living quarters.
Due to the earthquake in Haiti in January 2010, It was brought to our attention the need for a fast initial building structure for crisis relief. which could further transition post initial crisis to permanency.
This project goes further to address the transition into a larger home from an initial structure as a factors allow in these post crisis situations: new funding becoming available, time and growth of families.
The project develops in four phases growing from a single room to a possible four bedroom home.The approach to the project development was based strongly upon the expansion of gathering spaces and also passive systems for lighting and cooling based on location.
