We are a studio of 18 senior architecture students in the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning at the University of Cincinnati. We are honored to have the opportunity to present our research-based capstone project, Out of Failure, at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York City from May 17-20.
Inspired by the rise of human displacement as the result of natural and geo-political disasters, Out of Failure is an in-depth look at how rapid prototyping technology, digital design, and contemporary materials can be combined to provide the most effective, culturally sensitive, economical, and ergonomically designed disaster relief shelter possible. It is our hope that with the support of strategic partnerships forged at ICFF, we will be able to implement these shelters for disaster relief on a global scale. Contributions towards our campaign will go directly to further research, design, and development, culminating in a full-scale prototype that will give the attendees of ICFF an immersive and tactile understanding of our research.
