Gars-Nepal,Tibet temporary emergency shelter design, China

In response to the devastating earthquake in Nepal in April 2015, GCRS Global-Building Love Disaster-aid Material Trade Center, China, hosted an architectural competition all around the world to design reconstruction projects as a part of their GARS-NEPAL.TIBET Earthquake Emergency shelter.

Richa Jadhav  and  Akash  Relkar, final year B.Arch students from our college secured third rank amongst 340 participants all around the world, under the category of  GARSA1 temporary shelter than can be rapidly and massively reproduced.

The students proposed an innovative and cost effective design solution that was based on a r.c.c. drainage pipe used as a module. The concrete drainage pipes have many advantages such as easy availability, strength, zero maintenance, optimum functional space etc. These pipes need no construction labour on the site. They just need to be oriented and installed as per design requirement in a right way. Six Clusters of these pipes shelters were made to create public, semipublic and private court  areas. The courts formed by these clusters were covered using canopies of waterproof fabric.The purpose of these courts was creating a sorted flow public, to avoid chaos and maintain a hygienic atmosphere. Facilities of sufficient sanitation, vehicular access, gatherings spaces for food supply and health care camps were taken care of for all the clusters.

The use of pipes is a complete low cost effective notion to be used as the pipes to be used as the temporary shelter can be sent back for the purpose it is made for i.e. drainage and water supply systems.
