TEMPORARY CONDITIONS

With Stefano de Martino and Gerald Haselwanter.

TEMPORARY CONDITIONS

Objectives
In the design project the specification for temporary camps (UN refugee camps, disaster relief, etc) will be crossed with geodata (terrain, resources, infrastructure etc). Through mapping, analysis and evaluation organizational models and other site specific conditions are extracted and rearrange to generate a new urban design (high-speed urbanism,…)

Temporary structures have a tendency to become permanent realities for multitudes across the globe, struck either by disaster, war, migration, and environmental factors.

Method
In a first stage we will research examples of such structures and the context from which they arise.
This includes also less catastrophic scenarios, such as festivals (Quartzite, AZ; Coachella, CA) and projects addressing temporary and fluctuating events (Cedric Price, Archigram).

In a second phase of the project we will consider the potential of GIS and geodata tools for identifying and localizing site specific characteristics that could influence the placement and nature of temporary accommodation.

This project aims to highlight the limitations and deficits in planning human environments according to  material criteria, and to shift the attention to more open-ended and dynamic processes.
