Title: Designing Through Disaster
Author: Peterson, Lauren
Abstract: This thesis project is about how we can provide a cost and time effective source of emergency housing for those just affected by a natural disaster. Natural disasters rarely have a warning signal to them, and even when they do there is no way of predicting what the damages will be. Within a split second, thousands of people can be left homeless. With a simple yet effective design, people in high disaster zones like Minneapolis, MN, can live in emergency housing while the rubble is pushed away, and permanent homes are built. Emergency units are 85 to 125 square feet, and about 220 units can fit on the Minneapolis site. After permanent houses are built, the temporary structures can be taken down and used again for another natural disaster that is about to destroy another community.
