Shigeru Ban Architects


Project Description


Based on the shelter in Kobe, Japan, some improvements were applied to fit in with the environment in Turkey. One unit, for example, was 3 x 6m, a different and slightly larger configuration, which was due to the standard size of plywood in Turkey and also to the country’s larger average family size. Secondly, there was more insulation. Shredded wastepaper was inserted inside the tubes along the walls and fiberglass in the ceiling, and also cardboard and plastic sheets were used for more insulation, depending the resident’s needs.
