Wettbewerbsaufgabe / Competition Task
Welcome to Eleven’s 7th international ideas and design competition.

For this challenge, we focus our attention on natural disasters by looking at the concept and definition of shelter in their immediate aftermath and by posing the question: how can architecture and design help protect, shelter and save lives when they strike?

Natural disasters kill thousands of people a year. Typically, the biggest killer isn’t the actual event itself, but the hours following the event. Often, it is the lack of adequate shelter – a basic human need to survival – coupled with the obliteration of infrastructures and services and the lack of provisions, which make the 48 hours post-disaster a critical zone for the victims: a determining factor between survival or death.

This is where our competition steps in as we ask you to design ‘Shelter 48’: a guardian angel, a protector, and an emergency life-support system to be deployed rapidly after natural disasters strike.

There are no right or wrong answers, just endless possibilities in the pursuit of excellence and design-led innovation. Let your creativity go wild and enjoy the process! We really look forward to seeing your fantastic proposals.

What does the ultimate disaster relief shelter look like and how can it be made readily available in the aftermath the event, securing the lives of victims in these crucial hours?

You decide.

We encourage participants to think outside the box and come up with new ways of dealing with calamities around the world and, in doing so, setting a new standard for post-disaster action and shelter. In designing your prototype, we encourage you to engage with the following key concepts, seen as stimuli for ideas which can be expanded on, edited and added to:

Logistics – how will you get your shelter to the disaster?
Assembly – how is your design built on site?
Relation to Ground – how does your shelter relate to unpredictable and dangerous new conditions?
Specialist vs Generalist – are you designing for one particular disaster context (i.e. type of disaster or climatic region) or is your proposal a one-solution-fits-all shelter?
Adaptability – how can your design adapt to changing needs of use and adapt to shifting surroundings?
Capacity – for how many people is it for?
Program – what does your shelter provide?
Resilience – how strong is your design and how can it guarantee survival for the user?
Materials – what is made from?
Future – what happens to your shelter when it is not needed anymore?
