Creative Design on Portable Emergent Building after Earthquake
Following with the Wenchuan Earthquake of 2008 in China, the Haiti Earthquake of 2010 and so forth, a series of geologic hazards occur all around the world, and they are becoming more disastrous. Measures should be taken to prevent and reduce the disasters; however, providing accommodation for the refugees is an emergent issue after earthquake as well. Compared with the traditional temporary dwellings, the newly designed ones, whose properties, as contingent, portable, functional, humanized and periodical, can meet all needs in the new environment. The authors conduct a careful research on the design of this temporary dwelling, and later strengthen and develop its portable advantage in order to provide new choice for the accommodation for the refugees and other applications in future.
