The Shelter Design Project's vision is to transform the lives of displaced people encamped in extreme conditions through an engineered solution to housing that promotes a new science of shelter design.

This innovative project uses the current shelter occupants as part of the research team, rather than just a cohort to study. The project will lead to a transformative new science of shelter design based on multi-criteria optimisation that puts the social well being, health and thermal comfort of the shelter occupants at the center of the design process and allows an agile response.
