For this project we were tasked to design a refugee shelter. We were to base our design off of one word; I chose the word portable. I came up with an accordion design so my shelter folds up and can be transported.
Sketch: I started off by sketching my idea. came up with an accordion folding design.
Study Model: Then I build a model to see how it would work and see any issues in the design. I noticed that it would need something to hold it fully extended and cover the holes on the corners.
Final Drawing: After I saw the problems with the design I came up with a piece that goes over each corner and covers the holes while keeping it fully extended. Then I drafted the final drawing.
Final Model: Then I build a working model that has removed the the issue of the holes, staying fully extended, and I refined the fold out porch cover.
