BEX Asia 2017 Exhibition
Industry Event - Awareness Lab
BEX Asia 2017 is a trade exhibition for the green building market to source, network, learn and grow at a single, convenient platform. etc.lab curated a body of works which exemplifies the lab’s mission of empowering communities through design.
A team of staff and students from NP's School of Design & Environment has conceptualised shelter+, a low-cost and quickly deployable transitional shelter that can be replicated in real-world disaster situations in Asia such as the recent flooding in India, Bangladesh and Nepal.
We will be showcasing the 1:1 scale prototype of this eco-friendly, culturally appropriate and thermally comfortable living unit at BEX Asia for the very first time.
shelter+ is still undergoing design refinement as part of etc.lab's research work. We are welcoming any form of collaboration to bring shelter+ to communities in need.
As part of their Design Studio 2 module, final-year Architecture students from Diploma in Sustainable Urban Design & Engineering will also be showcasing their Transitional Shelter Designs.
