Abstract

The research aims to give a response to the emergency housing that occurs after catastrophic
events by proposing a low-cost solution through innovative constructions. The illustrated
solution - based on a living module composed by four adjacent sections that can be connected
to each other or to new ones - combines the concepts of minimum and affordability with those
of efficiency and sustainability.
