About This Project

In impoverished areas where the strength and facilities of the local government has been exhausted by natural disasters or unforeseen events, shelter is the basic commodity needed to ensure the protection and well-being of impacted families. The purpose of this research is to identify materials that can be used to build shelters. Ultimately, shelters built from these recycled materials would be used in impoverished areas for disaster response.
