Abstract

Within the SlimBouwen® philosophy of prof. dr. ir. J. Lichtenberg, an emergency shelter design was developed that can supply humanitarian, governmental and military organizations with an alternative form of shelter that can offer great relief to a large group of victims within a short time frame and be adapted to the actual (local) needs. Especially the integral approach of this design methodology leads to a solution that meets the complex requirements of an emergency shelter in the field of management, transport, construction and social implications under different circumstances. Smart means of transport, installation, construction and covering lead to a fast- and easy-to-install shelter type that is flexible and offers integrated climate control.
