    Reconstruction Process #2
     
    After urgent recovery, people can use their shelter by temporary house. Then, through out the year Haiti refugees could construct the rigid house when they utilize their shelter basement (concrete + steel mesh block).

    This shelter design is my suggestion for Haiti victims. We design feasible and relatively simple shelter for Haiti inhabitant that people can build. We use debris from earthquake and relief goods for shelter. This shelter will be house for Haiti victims during unpredictable recovering period.  During the reconstruction period, people can built this shelter using many concrete fragments, pallets, and easy gain materials. It gives them least living space and alternative dwelling. We try to consider two main seasons and dry season contain rainwater & use, shade area, ventilation.
