A group of
students from the MSA designed an emergency shelter module for homeless people, using only reclaimed materials (e.g. timber pallets) and drafting an assembly
manual to allow people with little construction knowledge to build similar
We helped the
group of students designing the module by providing some advice on the
buildability of the pod and how to make the structure stable.
The first module
(see pictures) was built in approximately a week by the group of students and
presented to the community.
