INDIA / India Projects Program
This project applied the principles of origami to develop smart shelters that can be adapted for individuals or groups in Himachal Pradesh, India. We engaged diverse user groups, including slum residents, migratory construction workers, and trekkers in the design process to develop a versatile structure that is portable, deployable, and weather resistant. The final product was field-tested among those same user groups to produce a list of additional features and changes to make in future versions.
