Student: Meryl Sell
Course: Design Fundamentals II, DS 222
Program: Interior Design

The Hinged Shelter is a disaster relief shelter designed to be comfortable, inviting, and easy to transport. Instead of being constructed similar to FEMA trailers with little to no attention to human psychological and social needs, The Hinged Shelter uses various elements and principles of design to make the temporary living space a place that the family will feel relaxed and ready to start their healing process sooner. The shelter also incorporates sustainable design, using materials with specific "green" qualities..
