Text description provided by the architects. In a world increasingly challenged by both man-made and natural disasters, the Shelter has been designed as a sustainable housing prototype that can be configured to suit almost any climate or orientation and can be readily and cheaply transported to diverse and remote locations around the globe.

Arriving flat-packed, the Shelter can be assembled quickly and has the potential to make a significant difference when applied to a range of medium to long-term housing solutions, it could also provide immediate solutions to industry as it moves to frontier locations. Most importantly, by providing refuge and security for families and communities in crisis, the Shelter can give back to societies in need everywhere.

Beyond emergency relief, the Shelter is known as Pavilion, a flexible module of space that could be used as a holiday house, a remote research laboratory, even mining accommodation; whatever can be conceived of in 37.5 sqm.
