SHELTER 48

Emergency Life-Support Design

Welcome to Eleven’s 7th international ideas and design competition. For this challenge, we focused our attention on the subject of natural disasters by looking at the concept and definition of shelter in their immediate aftermath of a calamity. We started off by asking the creative comiunity one question: how can architecture and design help protect, shelter and save lives when they strike?

Natural disasters kill thousands of people a year. Typically, the biggest killer isn’t the actual event itself, but the hours following the event. Often, it is the lack of adequate shelter – a basic human need to survival – coupled with the obliteration of infrastructures and services and the lack of provisions, which make the 48 hours post-disaster a critical zone for the victims: a determining factor between survival or death.

This is where our competition steped in. We ask our participants to design ‘Shelter 48’: a guardian angel, a protector, and an emergency life-support system to be deployed rapidly after natural disasters strike.

Now, the competition is over and our participating teams have submitted their proposals. We as you to vote for your favourite entries. The team with most points at the end of the voting round will go ahead and win the People’s Choice Award!
