suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
wael BATAL, anne SCHNEIDER, & adrian YIM: Emergency response shelters are typically designed for maximum usability, quick set-up time and issues of economy. This project seeks to reevaluate the terms of design for the emergency tent in order to promote vitality, optimism and comfort.
The tent’s form is propelled by two parallel objectives; the first is to challenge the relationship between object, ground and the horizontal datum that is typically struck in between. The second objective is to fit a wrinkled surface to the resulting body.
