All designs were tested out on the general public without any instructions. It was nice to see how people approached the situations.

All pieces put together, we realised that cardboard wasn't probably the best option of material due to its rigidity. Lets just say there was a lot of tape involved.

Worked on the most complex design chosen, cutting out 22 cardboard pieces that formed the large 4 metre pop-up tent.

Presentation time! Urun, the second year tutor, along with Fari analysed each design, and provided us with constructive criticism on improving the design to suit the needs. From the 4 presentations, 3 designs were chosen based on simplicity and overall cost and unfortunately the honeycomb structure had a high cost leading to the design being aborted.

Came up with designs for pop-up shelter since there was a change in the original plans of 3D printing a prototype structure. We used the designs from the previous origami session to come up with unique shelter. The idea behind our design was the honey-comb structure and how it can be connected to nearby tents of a similar shape. The structure needed 3 poles in order to be put up.

Introduction to emergency shelters in the morning which provided us with a brief, which required us to design a temporary shelter that could be used by the inhabitants for the length of a year. The afternoon was followed by a session of origami that should link to the shelter. Very informative day !
