This project aims to conceive a temporary housing unit, easily applicable to the cities victim of earthquake. The idea is to use essentially materials that can found in the sites hit by such a disaster. The design is based on the reused materials in order to reintegrate these materials in the building cycle. The structure is made of polycarbonate tubes vastly used in building industry for evacuation uses. The covering material is the undulated PVC. All the design and installation process was at the initiative of the students.
