Title: Boom Abodes : Designing for the Transition
Author: Davis, Benjamin
Abstract: With recent technological advances in oil extraction, communities across the Midwest are being hit by an oil boom. With a rapid growth of migrant workers flooding in to rural counties, economic strain and housing shortages threaten small communities. This thesis will examine the necessities of a rural community in North Dakota to cope with the oil boom and propose a temporary housing development to aid communities during transition. The housing system will be self-sustaining in nature, capable of functioning in various terrains. Considerations in climate, local resources and adaptability will be thoroughly researched to produce an efficient and reliable housing solution.
